Pretend to have a friend with the selfie arm by aric snee & justin crowe
fascinated by the idea of technology and its illusionary ‘connectedness’ and ‘sociableness’, snee and crowe created the ‘selfie arm’. the sarcastic solution to a quintessential problem — nobody wants to look alone while they mindlessly snap pictures of themselves — the product conveniently provides you a welcoming arm. and better yet, it doesn’t talk or have emotions of any sort. you can even create fake accounts and use its finger to like all your images; its not you its the hand! ‘selfie arm’ is made of fiberglass, is lightweight and portable, and fortunately only a prototype. the collaborative project is a direct commentary on the growing selfie stick phenomenon, and the constant, gnawing need for narcissistic internet validation.
don’t take another boring selfie, take 500 instead
WELL I’M THOROUGHLY CREEPED OUT NOW.
And even though it’s supposed to be a criticism of “the growing selfie stick phenomenon, and the constant, gnawing need for narcissistic internet validation” you know people are still gonna line up to get one. Sigh.
I wonder if it comes in any other colors besides zombie corpse gray.
