With the sheer amount of selfies uploaded to the cloud every minute, it was just a matter of time before someone leveraged our photographic narcissism for a stranger purpose. Miles Peyton, a Pittsburgh-based artist, has taken selfies to the next level with a project called PartsPartsParts.
“I want to create social spaces with new rules, if only for softer voices to emerge,” said Peyton, who works with code, image and sound, and studies computer science and art at Carnegie Mellon University.
To that end, he’s created three pages on NewHive, a DIY self-publishing tool where weirder Web content can thrive. Each page hosts clustered GIFs of user-submitted body parts, and visitors can anonymously add their own or rearrange what’s already there.
Our favorite part of this experiment so far? The way some prudish soul has quarantined all the inevitable penises far off in the bottom-right corner of the page. We’re calling that land “Dicktopia.”
