SELFIE: Portrait of the Apparatus, 2013
Hard-cover book, inkjet prints
This 5.5 X 8.5" hard-bound book contains 4X4" removable inkjet prints. The content of the photographic prints is imagery found under the hashtag 'selfie' in the Instagram app during the summer of 2013, when that term emerged.
All of the selected images were made utilizing a mirror and they have been cropped to the device by which they were created. The captions are derived from other hashtags which were associated with each image, or in cases for which there were no additional hashtags, they are 'untagged.' The image and text reside on the right-hand side throughout, in resemblance of a flip-book.
