Last week we showed you the unearthed ’50s ‘selfies’ of Vivian Maier, the secret nanny photographer lady person with a totes-jealous-worthy profile pics collection.
Brand developing artist duo ‘Pinar & Viola’ love exploring the SMORGES-BULGE that is the ww-Winternet and last week presented their favourite app-accessorised selfies of themselves and various ‘pinstra-artists’ or whatever [after the jump], plus a statement outlining their post-physical textplorations on DazedDigital:
“We, Pinar and Viola, are also children of the iGeneration. While xxxillion things happen in the world, we are flaunting our selflies on instagram…
These like-boosting photo apps enable even the least technically skilled selfie-taker to express him-/herself artistically. The apps function as a virtual make-up artist without borders. From a subtle touch like a virtual accessory on your #outfitoftheday, to a complete make-over…
We selected a series of contemporary self-portraits, from our Instagram feed, that speak an authentic visual language matching the current thrills of the www. These ‘overworked’ selfies reflect the complexities of our times. Intended or not, these skilled selfie-decorators are stretching the norms of beauty, ideal, gender and taste.”
Favourite twinstra-pram ? ‘unknowna’s tribal cartoon cat headdress extravaganza ‘Gotta big ass hand…’ undoubtedly !
