The Perfect Selfie

The Perfect Selfie

“Social media is obviously not taboo.  But, its obsessive vanity, that is the focus of this canteen.  In our rush to create the ‘perfect selfie’ for public consumption, we hide behind masks of our own creation and leave behind reality.  The back of the canteen reveals the ‘arm’ of the internet reaching out for us.  We perform and pose for those unseen, who silently watch and wait for us to post ever more revealing selfies.”  Virgil Ortiz
