This Installation Turns Your Selfies Into Gravel

On show at the National Ethnographic Museum.

A new art installation offers a unique upgrade to your selfies, allowing them to turn instantly into gravel. Created by Pangenerator, a Warsaw-based art collective, it was commissioned by the National Ethnographic Museum in Warsaw, who asked the group to create a work that would take a look at an aspect of teenage life.

To do this the creatives decided to focus on selfie culture, specifically the idea that we will eventually lose our digital existence because of old-unsupported file formats and changing storage devices. “We naturally thought of selfie culture and played with this idea of preserving our images compulsively, contrasted with the fragility of data in a long run,” said the creatives, talking to Dezeen. The installation is currently on show at the National Ethnographic Museum.

We also recently spoke to Martha Cooper about why she doesn’t want to be called an art critic.
