Canadian Douglas Coupland is the author of many non-fiction books & novels and currently is the visual artist in residence at the Google Cultural Institute in Paris, France, among many other impressive resume listings in the publishing world and the art world. Coupland was one of the featured artists at the Armory Show, 2016 - with an installation booth set up at the entrance to the art fair.

"DE-RECOGNIZED SELFIES as ART" - Douglas Coupland's program at the Amory Show was to "de-recognize photographic portraiture" self-portraits or otherwise! 

When we all look in the mirror, we look differently than when we see our image in a photograph.  Selfies are changing this phenomenon. Today with smart-phone technology we are seeing so many photos of ourselves that we are actually re-wiring our brains to recognize and understand what we look like to the rest of the world.
