Selfie Stick Disguised As Hand To Make It Look Like You Have Friends

This bizarre selfie-hand designed by artists Justin Crowe and Aric Snee will make sure that you won’t have to take another lonely selfie ever again! Sure, you’ll still be lonely, but your selfie will look like your friend took it for you!

In truth, the project is a wonderful piece of social commentary on “the growing selfie stick phenomenon, and the constant, gnawing need for narcissistic internet validation.” Crowe’s description is merciless; not only does it solve the lonely selfie problem, but “better yet, it doesn’t talk or have emotions of any sort. You can even create fake accounts and use its finger to like all your images; it’s not you, it’s the hand! ‘Selfie arm’ is made of fiberglass, is lightweight and portable, and fortunately only a prototype.”

Read on for Crowe’s answers to Bored Panda’s questions about his work!

“There is a backwardness to the act of taking a selfie – one that ultimately makes you feel more alone,” Justin Crowe told Bored Panda.

“The Selfie arm is a sarcastic Band-Aid to fix that feeling and it also compromises the whole premise behind taking the selfie. These ideas gave birth to the Selfie Arm”

“I have taken a selfie (for research purposes only, I swear) and I liked it. I don’t take selfies very often”

“The Selfie Arm is art-disguised-as-design and we are offering a limited edition of 10 artist signed Selfie Arms at $6,200 each”

Thank you, Justin Crowe, for talking to Bored Panda about your work!

I was going to say that it looks like Death has come for her and she's right ready to go.

So... she's dating a mannequin? ... either that or a corpse because the skin color is inhuman.
