Instagram Buddha - 2021

Mixed media installation (Buddha sculpture, Instagram Live account, iPhone, MacBook)

Photos: Installation view, Photography: Past & Present exhibition at The Progress Gallery, Pomona, CA.

The new generation that actively expresses themselves on SNS has transformed photography. Having 'self' as the subject of shooting videos and taking photos, contemporaries want to share self-conscious moments, advertise the names, and enjoy the interests from the public instantaneously. This installation questions the desire for fame shown into our eyes. Do selfies worth it? Instagram Buddha meditates on social media and its impact in our perception on self-revelation. This work is an homage to Nam June Paik's TV Buddha (1974) with a modern twist.
