Whimsical and surreal, this installation uses a non-conventional medium to feed commentary about pushing life and art into the modern day – specifically the extent to which social media now inhabits our private and intimate moments.
Swimming in Selfies uses a high-tech, industrial grade vinyl that coats everything from ceiling to floor. As one enters the tiny W.C. space, three additional figures visually coax the viewer to engage. A woman in lingerie and a man seated on the toilet each seem nonplussed by your presence, while a giant pink octopus, not initially identifiable, dangerously surrounds the space. Experience this collaborative piece by Gary James Lee and Spencer Pearson, and join the conversation.
