Finally a Museum of Selfies

 

The Museum of Selfies is an interactive museum that explores the history and cultural phenomenon of the selfie – an image of oneself taken by oneself – with roots dating back 40,000 years. Visitors can explore the origin of the selfie through the lens of art, history, technology, and culture while taking some cool selfies of their very own with our interactive installations. The Museum of Selfies promises to share the unseen depths and history of this cultural phenomenon. Whether you love them or hate them, you won’t see selfies the same way again.

The Museum of Selfies is the creation of Tommy Honton and Tair Mamedov, two escape-room designers who, together, wanted to explore the history of the selfie and why people feel the need to capture and reproduce images of themselves, according to Latimes.com

Mamedov says, “Nowadays, museums are not just a place where you just come to check the art. They’re a place where you come to create something, using your phone and usually your pretty face to collaborate with existing art and make something new.” He hopes that The Museum of Selfies will raise questions about art, artists, and “the fine border between consumer and artist.” According to Lamag.com
