The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…

YES.

Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.

“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.” ― John Berger, Ways of Seeing

Alicia Eggert & Mike Fleming - Eternity (2010)

"Consisting of 30 electric clocks rear-mounted to a large sheet of white acrylic.

During the installation, the hour and minute hands of the clocks are aligned to spell the word ‘eternity’, and the clocks are plugged into a series of power strips on the floor.

The hands begin to move as soon as the switch on the last power strip is flipped, and the word almost immediately becomes a jumble of moving black lines. 

‘Eternity’ does not reappear until the hour hands return to their original positions twelve hours later, and even then, it lasts a mere split second.”
