I want you to want me is a digital project, created by artists Jonathan Harris and Sep Kamvar. It scraped phrases and data from the legion of dating websites around the world, and visualised them to build a barometer of modern attitudes towards desire, each other, and ourselves. It was a commission for New York's Museum of Modern Art and went on show on Valentine's Day 2008.
