Sorry, Your Selfie Isn’t Art

See on Scoop.itCultural evolution

And that’s okay (Sorry, Your Selfie Isn’t Art vía @EsquireMag)

Tom Uytterhoeven‘s insight:

Once more an article that is not about cultural evolution per se, but it’s just too good to ignore. "The selfie is a result of this new reality. The selfie (…) a disengagement from the self as much as it is a promotion of the self." Making a portrait of ourselves should be just about the most obvious example of cultural self-expression you can find. But as the article shows, our technolo gy changes the game, to the point you can wonder if our self-perception changes because of that. Interesting read!
