10 Selfies That Went Awry



Some observers of society say we live in a narcissistic age in which, more and more, many of us act as though we’re the center of the universe. Judging by the selfie phenomenon, it’s hard to argue against such pundits’ claims.

While selfies are a way of getting the 15 minutes of fame that Andy Warhol claimed would be everyone’s due before long, the pictures we take with our cell phone cameras can reveal more than mere vanity. As these ten selfies that went awry demonstrate, the photos we take of ourselves on the spur of the moment can capture embarrassing behavior, carelessness, criminality, and downright foolishness.

NYC – Union Square: Andy Monument

NYC - Union Square: Andy Monument

The Andy Monument, a 10-foot-tall chrome statue of Andy Warhol by sculptor Rob Pruitt, was on display in the pedestrian plaza at 17th Street at the northeast corner of Union Square from March 30 to October 2, 2011. Pruitt fashioned the statue, commissioned by the Public Art Fund, by using digital scanning of a live model — his friend and Cincinnati art collector Andy Stillpass — and hand sculpting. Pruitt depicts Warhol in 1977, dressed in Levi’s 501s, a Brooks Brothers blazer, wearing a Polaroid camera around his neck and carrying a Medium Brown Bag from Bloomingdale’s.

The Monument, an homage to the Father of Pop Art, stands in front of the building at 860 Broadway, which now houses a PetCo, but was the former location of Andy Warhol’s "Factory." Warhol started his Factory in 1968, where he made silkscreens and printed pagazines, at the nearby Decker Building, at 33 Union Square West before moving to Broadway and 17th Street in the 1970s. It was on this corner that Warhol could often be found standing, handing out copies of Interview Magazine, a publication he founded in 1969.

KAWS Companion (passing through)

The famed KAWS Companion has been reincarnated larger than life. Standing, or should I say sitting, at around 16 feet tall in this Thinker-esque position. You almost wonder if he’s playing hide & go seek with someone, or perhaps he’s shamed of his giant stature.

Once you arrive at the grounds of The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT you get a glimpse of this giant art piece, then upon walking up to this giant seems twice the size of what you’d think it to be.

Unfortunately the weather wasn’t too spectacular yesterday, the sun was no where to be found. I trekked down to the Aldrich Museum for the first time with my friend Matt S. to see this installation prior to its June departure from the grounds of the Aldrich Museum.

If you’re a KAWS fan, or fan of pop art, I’d recommend a trip to the Aldrich Museum to see Companion before it’s gone. Also inside the museum itself they have a few galleries showcasing portraiture and there is some outside work to be seen there.

California: Stanford University – Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University – Gay Liberation

California: Stanford University - Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University - Gay Liberation

In 1979, pop sculptor George Segal was commissioned by the Mildred Andrews Fund, a private Cleveland-based foundation that supports public art, to create a work that would commemorate New York City’s Stonewall Rebellion, the 1969 riot that marks the beginning of the modern gay liberation movement. The result was the first piece of public art commemorating the struggle of GLBTG people for equality, predating Amsterdam’s "Homomonument" by some seven years.

The sculpture, a life-like, life-size bronze group, painted white, depicts four figures: a standing male couple and a seated female couple. One of the men holds the shoulder of his partner; one of the seated women gently touches her friend’s thigh. The poses are non-dramatic, but quietly powerful, suggesting depths of love and companionship.

The idea for a sculpture to honor the gay and lesbian rights movement on the tenth anniversary of Stonewall originated with Bruce Voeller, co-founder and first executive director of the National Gay Rights Task Force and the founder of the Mariposa Foundation. The plan was to create two castings–one for New York City’s Sheridan Park, near the site of the Stonewall Inn, and one in Los Angeles. However local residents opposed the plans for the installation. Instead the sculpture was installed at Stanford University, where after just a month it was attacked with a ball-peen hammer. After being repaired, it was reinstalled only to be spray painted with the word AIDS, and vandalized again in 1994 with splattered black paint. In 1992 New York City finally agreed to place the statue in Christopher Park, where it was dedicated on June 23.

The land that is now Christopher Park was developed from 1633 to 1638 as a tobacco farm by Wouter Van Twiller, Director-General of New Netherland. Following Van Twiller’s death, his land was divided into three farms: the Trinity Church and Elbert Herring farms to the south and Sir Peter Warren¡¦s farm to the north. Skinner Road was laid out along the line separating the Warren farm from the other two. This road was later renamed Christopher Street, honoring Charles Christopher Amos, an heir of a trustee to the Warren estate

Between 1789 and 1829, Christopher Street was subdivided into lots, and blocks were laid out along its length. Due to the irregular configuration of streets in Greenwich Village, blocks were not laid out according to a standard grid plan, and many oddly-shaped blocks were created. In the early 1800s, the population of Greenwich Village expanded dramatically, and the area around Christopher Street began to suffer from overcrowding. When a devastating fire tore through the area in 1835, residents petitioned the City to condemn a triangular block at the intersection of Christopher, Grove, and West 4th Streets and establish a much-needed open space on the site. On April 5, 1837 the City condemned the parcel and created Christopher Park.

Christopher Park, which is graced with a 130-year-old fence, contains two other monuments. The flagpole, erected in 1936, commemorates several of the 1861 Fire Zouaves, an elite Civil War unit that wore uniforms styled after North African tribesmen. Joseph Pollia’s statue of General Philip H. Sheridan stands at the eastern end.
