A Museum of Selfies Has Opened in Los Angeles
And it sounds bomb...
Selfie fans rejoice (and prepare for a pilgrimage to L.A.) because the City of Angels has a brand new attraction, and it’s a museum dedicated entirely to the selfie.
Hardly surprising, considering 2.4 million selfies a DAY are uploaded to social media globally. Yeesh.
If you’re looking to enhance your grid this is the place to go; because it’s not just a load of Kim Kardashian belfies hanging on a wall, oh no - this shizz interactive, pals.
The pop-up, open until the 31st May, features some amazing ‘one-of-a-kind exhibits’ to show off your selfie skills, including the ‘high up selfie’ - designed to mimic the top of a skyscraper and induce some serious vertigo; the ‘bathroom selfie’ - a two-sided room with some optical illusion vibes; the ‘food selfie’ - a super-sized installation for all the foodies out there and more.
On a slightly darker note, there’s also a ‘narcissist’ exhibit, examining the number of deaths from selfie-related accidents. Just in case you were having too much fun after playing with the record-breaking 90 foot long selfie stick that extends through the entire length of the museum.
Along with the immersive stuff, there’s also works from famous selfie artists, including David J. Slater, the guy behind that viral ‘monkey selfie’ and Riccardo Scalise, nicknamed ‘Mr. Selfie’ thanks to his snaps with the rich and famous.
