In Greek mythology, Narcissus (/nɑrˈsɪsəs/; Greek: Νάρκισσος, Narkissos) was a Hunter from Thespiae in Boeotia who was known for his beauty.
He was the son of the river god Cephissus and nymph Liriope.
He was proud, in that he disdained those who loved him.
Nemesis noticed this behavior and attracted Narcissus to a pool, where he saw his own reflection in the water and fell in love with it, not realizing it was merely an image.
Unable to leave the beauty of his reflection, Narcissus drowned.
Narcissus is the origin of the term narcissism, a fixation with oneself and one's physical appearance.

The Narcisissme Stick


The selfie stick provides the possibility to capture yourself with who and whatever you want.
For example with your friends, the eiffeltower or the dessert.
Despise with who or whatever you are capturing yourself here is always one constant factor: you are in the picture.

We believe that by using a selfie stick there is a, big, possibility that people got obsessed by this.
Everything they see, and with every one they meet, they want to be captured.
They want to be captured.

And this is where the reality starts warping.
The world has turned into potential selfies.
Everything can be a selfie.
And for the people who are lost in the world of selfies these are selfies.
We are going to warp this warped reality into a new stick.
A stick with, instead of a phone or a camera, a mirror.

By this we want to show that we believe that the selfie stick is not about capturing yourself with friends or landscapes, but it is about capturing yourself.
By replacing the camera for a mirror we are zooming in on this.
We, as we in dutch say, willen op deze manier een spiegel voorhouden.

Stëfan Schäfer & Selby Gildemacher: Extensions of Man
For the ongoing Extensions of Man project, we’ve developed a tool entitled “The Selfie Extender”.
For this special occasion, The Selfie Extender enables us to take a Selfie in Cape Town from Amsterdam and vice versa.
A Selfie operates as a proof for being present at a certain location: We become our own watermark.
This tool devides the act of taking a Selfie and the location, which is “traditionally” seen as a whole.

Concept text


Printing on mirror.

‘Mirrors” aims to re-interpret the meaning of the word ‘pixel’.
Rather than taking the form of a tight grid, typical for the flat, orderly display of information,
each individual ‘pixel’ has been given the distinct freedom and ability to move around in a three dimensional space, at its own discretion.
Evolving from the ‘Audience’ installation, the hundreds of animated mirrors move collectively to create a subtle, continuous flow of movement.
The installation spans two floors over six meters, in the atrium of London’s Bruton Street.

‘Mirrors’, completed in April 2009, was rAndom’s first permanent installation in the UK.
189 Perspex mirrors, aluminium, stainless steel, 300 servos, custom electronics, computer
6000 x 1500 x 300 mm
