The rise of the selfie placed our egos at the center of attention. The self-centered side of social media was very difficult for me. To explore this I created an interactive mirror art series where hundreds of phrases are flashed in rapid succession on the reflective surface. The mirror inevitably coaxes us to take a selfie. Much like the discovery of a Magic 8-Ball within our phone’s photo album, our reflections are paired with aspirational or provocative text to remind us who we are or could be. In just over a year, it has become a global cross-culture social phenomenon – tens of thousands of Instagram selfies are now spreading affirmations of body positivity, dreams and love. These selfies have become the art and the mirror just a messenger.
