Event Details

What does your camera roll look like? Probably sandwiched somewhere between dank memes, random screenshots and your last meal out, you’ll find a series of pictures of your straining, struggling face desperately trying to find the right angle, the ideal lighting, the appropriate expression. And perhaps, if you’re lucky, you caught the perfect picture somewhere between snap eight and 10,000. Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

In How To Take the Perfect Selfie, you’ll receive all the necessary skills required to hone your selfie game and properly edit that mug with tips sourced from the best bloggers, makeup artists and influences across Instagram. Get ready to pout, tilt and work that face like you never have before.

The purpose of this project is to explore the idea of expression and tailored image in the age of social media. While presented in a mocking style, students will walk away with actual tools they can use when taking their own selfies but overall, the intention is to highlight an obsession with online validation and confront self-absorbed tendencies that Internet culture has instilled in all of us, from the most active to the seemingly reluctant participant.

How to Take the Perfect Selfie is part of the Library of Things We Can Learn from Each Other, a participatory project that welcomes into circulation skills and knowledge from community members on a broad range of topics, from the every day and instructional to abstract and conceptual. Embracing non-expert and experience-based knowledge, practical, theoretical or intuitive understandings, the library reflects the interests of the people who contribute to it and celebrates the unique assets each person brings to the community.
