Instagram co-founder Mike Krieger and artist Taryn Simon lead a playful, interactive experiment addressing popular tropes in image production on the Internet, and challenge you to make the worst picture ever. Be sure to bring your smart phone!

Mike Krieger is the co-founder and head of engineering at Instagram. As technical co-founder, Mike has played a role in building the Instagram mobile apps, scaling the Instagram infrastructure to more than 150 million active users, and recruiting the Instagram engineering team. Mike studied symbolic systems at Stanford University, a mix of computer science, design, and cognitive science.

Taryn Simon’s artistic medium consists of three equal elements: photography, text, and graphic design. Her works investigate the impossibility of absolute understanding and open up the space between text and image, where disorientation occurs and ambiguity reigns. Simon’s works have been the subject of monographic exhibitions at institutions including Museum of Modern Art, New York (2012), Tate Modern, London (2011); Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin (2011); Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2007). Permanent collections include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Tate Modern, Whitney Museum, Centre Pompidou, and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art. In 2011, her work was included in the 54th Venice Biennale. In 2013, her work was included in the Carnegie International. She lives and works in New York.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
