Specs: Selfie hand anatomy, 2018, animation in loop, 4K video, 25 seconds, 55-inch screen.
With new technology comes new behaviour. With the introduction of the smartphone came the selfie. This work shows a rendering of a hand while taking a selfie – a typical 21st century gesture, pointing inwards. It visualizes our desire to look at ourselves and fabricate contemporary trompe-l’oeil footage for social media.
The photogrammetry consists of a 115 photos and is presented as an endlessly looped animation. It deconstructs the selfie hand as a contemporary machine in which technology became an extension of oneself.
