Selfie Evolution

 Selfie Evolution
Wood, waxed rice paper, Plexiglas, gouache, silver ink, and LEDs



This light box explores the human need to replicate the self, from Narcissus and his reflection, to Man Ray and his art photography. The ubiquity of cell phones has led to the need for new vocabulary, as illustrated by Obama's notorious "selfie" moment. A pattern inspired by early Kodak camera design frames each tableau.
