Powerful Art Project Around Anonymous Comments and The Power of the Selfie

Baltimore woman turns nasty and hateful anonymous comments from her blog and creates a powerful project, using them over selfies. I think this really speaks a lot to the kind of world we live in, despite those that may argue differently issues like ‘cyber bullying’, ‘slut shaming’ and ‘rape culture’ are all very clearly displayed in this one particular project. Thank you, Lindsay Bottos, for your honesty and your creativity and your bravery in putting yourself out there!

 

“The act of women taking selfies is inherently feminist, especially in a society that tries so hard to tell women that our bodies are projects to be worked on and a society that profits off of the insecurities that it perpetuates. Selfies are like a ‘fuck you’ to all of that, they declare that ‘hey I look awesome today and I want to share that with everyone’ and that’s pretty revolutionary.”
