Imaging your shelfies/selfies could move, morph and attach themselves to the performer on stage. They could attempt to usurp the whole situation on stage. I would love that. Have a look at the artwork by Siddharth Mankad. In terms of visuals I find it very inspiring:
Since I am obsessed with learning to code, I could imagine a kind of interactive video art. Courageous for somebody who has just started to learn programming? Sure, but why not aim for the stars.
It is still early to know exactly what will happen to the shelfie/selfie submissions in the final art work. For now they are exhibited on our community gallery as an inspiration for everybody. Maybe you have your own shelfie-idea you want to realise. Let us know about it.
