Originally exhibited via Instagram, the smart-phone app for sharing images, Jackson Eaton’s Melfies 2explores a deep irony of the digitally networked era. The latest digital tools and media platforms may enable our attempts at self-expression, but the streams of selfies they spew out instead reveal the opposite. Instagram makes instantly apparent, Eaton notes, “the failure to express individuality in social media”. To create Melfies 2 Eaton took his own photo anywhere he could find a mirror then he digitally dissected his body in Photoshop and reverse-image searched the parts in Google.
