selfies #9 – introducing the ‘selfie stick’
self portraits can be a classic and classy representation of an artist and they’ve been made since the earliest times of any kind of art – from drawings, photographs and even sculptures.
‘selfies’ nowadays turn self portraits from an aesthetic approach, to create a picture of yourself, into an narcissistic waste of your time looking into the camera of your smartphone.
show the world chocolate side of your existence, while asking yourself if you’ve ever worn these cloth in a ‘selfie’. another very disgusting excess since evil wo(men) invented the internet.
my idea is to take self portraits, looking for mirrors wherever I go.
as a result the focus is not on my face, it’s on what surrounds me:
A selfie stick is a monopod used to take selfie photographs by positioning a smartphone or camera beyond the normal range of the arm…
so this ‘thing’ gives you the ability to leave the ‘normal range of the arm’, in order to move yourself from a potential social situation into a preferably anonymous status quo where you don’t have to make contact to other human beings? unless you’re not alone on a mountain I say BULLSHIT!
it just adds another feature to peoples characters to master their behaviourism in isolating themselves – better keeping distance than getting your Iphone stolen, right? right!
