Sixteen Months compiles all of the photographs exchanged between Swartzel and Vega through iMessage during the first year and four months of their relationship.  This view into their private lives depicts the performative intent behind their daily actions as they met, courted, and ultimately established a friendship and productive working connection.  Sixteen Months makes visual the process by which they placed complete faith in the other.  Welcome to Their Faith in You.
