THE ULTIMATE FLOATING SELFIE MACHINE, 2015

Balloon, nylon cable, iphone, helium, mobile phone holder


The Ultimate Floating Selfie Machine is a device that attempts to create a floating version of the so called selfie stick. A balloon holds a mobile phone equipped with a photographic camera that can be controlled by bluetooth from the ground.

Despite the user's efforts to control the device, the balloon's unpredictable and disobeying behavior brings randomness to the photographic act and, most of the times the person disappears from the center of the frame.
