How to Take the Perfect Selfie with Eleanor Maim
Thursday, November 28, 7 – 8 pm | 2422 Lake Shore Blvd West
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 selfies. Still, 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.
