Quinn Tivey uses a custom computer program to automatically and randomly abstract and reblog strangers’ selfies on Tumblr. In the exhibition, the nearly 50,000 selfie abstractions he has made for the web can be seen on an iPad. From this group, Tivey selects abstractions to create 3D lenticular images, which are backlit and framed to become monumental, physical objects.
