Physical manifestation of our interaction with an instagram post.
Viewers can interact with New Post by stepping on a physical “like” button. While the work is turned on, it counts the number of “likes” it receives. As each person interacts with it, they see their reflection in a mirror obscured by the combined “likes” counted numerically over their faces. This dynamic allows connections to form between the object, the collective, and the individual. The selfie images included on this page (and more!) can be found on Instagram at #SocialAnimalsTAMU.
