The illustration catches a young woman lost in her own image. The piece asks the viewer who the selfie is for. The image questions our relationship with phones, our reliance on them and our increasing habit of objectifying ourselves through our objects.
The final piece is a 5 colour enamel screen print, printed directly onto the screen of an iPhone 4. The black of the illustration is the screen of the phone itself showing through the negative spaces left by the rest of the print. Printed in an edition of just 10.
The phone itself has had the battery removed and been painstakingly cleaned to remove all traces of the previous owner before being hand printed. As each phone that comes to the studio has it's own character, each piece in the edition is unique, pictured here is a black iPhone 4, this edition also includes a white iPhone 4.
The printed iPhone is presented float mounted in a hand built black box frame, it is signed, dated, numbered and titled on the reverse of the frame.
