Conjure up new identities to share with your friends, and explore the notions of self and others in a more collective perspective.
A camera application inspired by the Surrealist parlour game The Exquisite Corpse and the contemporary manifestation of self-portraiture, the selfie, popular amongst kids and young people. The appearance of smart devices featuring front-facing cameras, the phenomenon has gained popularity to the extent of becoming somewhat ubiquitous.
Exploring your individual identity by shooting a selfie and sharing it on a social network site, has become an important mode of expression for young people, while older generations have a tendency to experience it as narcissistic behaviour
The application invites you to select an image from a database of photographs that other users have previously shot, which will form the half of your image. Then align the camera for a desirable frame for the second half, and take a shot. Conjur up new identities to share with your friends, and explore the notions of self and others in a more collective perspective.
