5. Item 190: Evolution of Selfies
“Item 190: Evolution of the selfie:
A person with an iPhone taking a selfie next to a person with a point-and-shoot camera who is taking a photo of a person with a Polaroid camera who is taking a picture of a person with a 35mm camera who is taking a photo of a person with a daguerreotype camera taking a picture of a person with a camera obscura taking a picture of someone painting a self-portrait.
This should be a single photo, not photos from each camera.”
This item was like breaking the 20th wall. Laura Martin and Angela Mott of team PandasLoveRaivers went through a lot to find all of the required cameras for the photo. Angela even hit up her ex-husband for their old point-and-shoot camera. She said, “There were phone calls and driving and chasing. This was actually the true spirit of the scavenger hunt.”
Angela’s entire Bellydance crew called the Sonic Rainbooms and another called Dyad got on board to pose for the photo. They went through possible period costume ideas, but they ultimately decided to go with their Bellydance costumes to make the photo pop with color. The drama of this photo truly embodies the spirit of GISH.
