“In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.” -Andy Warhol, 1968

It has never been easier to advertise ones life. On the social networks, everyone can share whatever is on ones mind, feel popular, feel liked. Concentrated on phenomenon of selfies, especially on the type ‘kiss me’ cliche self-portraits of girls captured on low quality cameras. Celebrities we know from magazines, are taking the same type of pictures with their smartphones and share them online. It almost feels like a obligation to have a selfie on the social network. I have downloaded hundreds of selfies of girls from open profiles, I’m not a friend  on Facebook (you agree to give up all your photos freely to Facebook when you agree to terms and policy when signing up – downloading pictures is free for everyone without the need to inform the official uploader). The viewer has to lean back to see the projection on ceiling, organically generated, gently blinking in a seek of your attention one after an other. Million of same pictures, gently breath in the rythm of a galaxy.
