Selfie culture degrades humans. At the core of the problem is this: modern society values external beauty over other attributes like intelligence, thereby giving the message to people that it doesn’t matter what your brain looks like, the only thing that matters is how you look physically.

Most of us realie that worshipping the selfie is not going to move humanity forward, but most of us can’t look away either. This points to the fact that humans have not evolved even in the slightest. Most of us are the same as we were in high school: in search of status, money and sex.

Love this piece.

I have created a few selfie pieces that are meant to be a statement about how we degrade ourselves. One I titled Selfie-Objectification. On the surface the pieces seem funny and cute, but they are not meant to be. I do wonder why each collector purchased them. To some it may seem that the piece was objectifying women, but they were actually created to emphasize how we are manipulated by the mainstream consumerism machine that portrays a false value system and a fake reality.
