Lev Manovich's Selfiecity in The Atlantic
The Atlantic, “Cities Place Matters,” 2.18.14
This synopsis comes from a delightful analysis of thousands of actual selfie photos from Berlin, Bangkok, Sao Paolo, New York and Moscow (where, yes, there is notably more selfie brooding). The project was created by Lev Manovich at the Graduate Center at CUNY – who also brought us an earlier playful study of Big Data in Instagram from various cities – alongside half a dozen other data scientists, curators and researchers.
