The ‘#selfiefactory’ is an experimental art installation creating a temporary visual experience of online behaviour.
The installation offers a tangible experience to explore the scale and quality of online data uploaded in the present. It will utilise the real-time stream of Instagram (#selfie) data and print a collection of the most recent images uploaded onto receipt paper.
This taxonomy of the online self-portrait (#selfie) is an investigation into the experienced divide of online spaces and physical places, the division of an individual experience and the collective experience of our telematic world.
The ‘#selfiefactory’ is an automated installation running for 24 hours.
The audience is able to explore the taxonomy while the images are printed.
People in Melbounre and around the
globe are invited to contribute their digital self-portrait (#selfie) to become part of

The social transformation through technological innovation in urban space is what shapes today's life in cities. Imagining the actual scale and dimension technology has on social life can be chellenging in most places. It often only becomes evident when one starts looking back. The attempt to capture, where such impact is evident can reveal an unexpacted narrative.
The photographic typology of telegraph poles which are running along the streets of Los Angeles carry our messages on various levels. These wooden pillars are witnesses of human communication, and witnesses of social transformation.
