Exploring consumer perceptions of the selfie phenomenon, the Selfie PhotoBooth included a range of thought-provoking and playful interactive installations. Visitors were encouraged to become the main actors in the exhibition. Their mobile phone applications were hijacked and selfie sticks were re-imagined to conjure a series of rotated, twisted, fractured reflections and projection-interlaced portraits. In another project exploring the Quantified Self and data-logging, students from ECAL unveiled Huge Selfie, a film depicting self-portrait techniques on an excursion to Beijing.

The Big Picture: As viewers recorded and shared their journey through social media, the wider audience was able to piece together the disruption that The Sharded Self is having on visual culture.
