“#Selfienation lays no claims to immortality. It only wants the most love and control in a moment. This cathection was attained by one artist in the N#SPG: Jennifer Chan, in whose paralyzing Glow the dick becomes an iPhone or the iPhone becomes a dick. Either way you’re holding it, and she’s really doing her best, I mean she’s actually sucking with these wet pretty noises and everything. I almost couldn’t watch it, either. Maybe selfies are not always masturbation: harmless, pleasurable, and easy, replacing helpfully a need for physical interaction. Maybe a selfie is also this way of saying look at me, bitch. You better come when I’m looking at you.” – Sarah Prickett, “Sein und Zit”, ArtForum, 10.24.13
