Instagram Buddha - 2021
Installation (Buddha sculpture, Camera inserted in iPhone, Mac Book, and Instagram Account)
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 reflects on the desire for fame shown into our eyes. Perhaps selfies worth it? This work is an homage to Nam June Paik's
TV Buddha (1974) with a modern twist.
