The people: The #selfie's urform

Book Section

© The Author(s) 2017. The chapter considers the ways in which the selfie is connected, in its quotidianness, to private life. In its daily co-articulation and its challenge to objects invested with power, it upends contemporary notions of the state, of government, of capital, of art and urban design, of copyright and of privacy. As such, the selfie aligns with the quotidian body of the collective, indeed, 'the people' comprised of both flesh and data - an amorphous sensing body, articulated with and networked to others across national boundaries at a distance away.
