Where to Take Selfies at the New York Art Fairs
Walking through the various art fairs open in New York this week, mirrors showed up time and time again. At Spring/Break, Anish Kapoor (who designed the famous – and well-photographed – public art piece The Bean in Chicago), created a small, smooth sphere. It's hard, if not impossible, to resist whipping out your iPhone to snap your likeness – an interesting, ahem, reflection of our time. Are we, as viewers, artwork unto ourselves or simply endlessly narcissistic? In any case, there's certainly something to be said for the art of the selfie.
