SELFIE WALL creates a range of lighting conditions day and night, offering a dynamic and interactive space for self-photography.
The wall is built from over 150 custom-fabricated aluminum composite units, CNC-milled and folded, to shape different apertures for bouncing, scattering, and collecting light. A grid of LED lights is inset to provide zones of different color temperatures at night. The public is encouraged to explore the dynamic matrix on site, finding the lighting condition and background most suitable for their own self-portrait.
The project extends AGENCY’s previous work, designing new interfaces for self-photography in public space. Through an extended online and on-site digital presence, the installation will draw attention to the potentials and and pitfalls of the vast range of metadata extracted from a still-burgeoning global selfie culture.
The project is part of an annual event sponsored by the City of El Paso Museum and Cultural Affairs Department (MCAD). AGENCY is one of five international artists featured the exhibition. The project is sponsored in part by AIA-El Paso.
