Selfie Time. #womentakingselfies

A new exploration of the selfie via Instagram and my new app Layout, which allows me to do some layering of images. I’m taking a ride on the hashtag #womentakingselfies and enjoying thinking about how women of my age are supposed to be invisible. My first few attempts had me looking away from the lens, but this one and my previous one (below) take the lens on.
This could become the basis for some new work around women of my age and power. The female gaze, self-gaze, directing the viewer’s gaze all become interesting when you have a new tool to play with.
