Handwoven tapestries depicting young women obsessed with selfies by Brooklyn-based artist Erin M. Riley. Her imagery depicts a fraction of the woman's external identity and serves as a reminder of the human need to connect. The images are sourced from the internet and she weaves each piece using a Macomber floor loom. Riley spends between forty and eighty hours weaving and the artist washes, strips, and hand dyes every string herself before a single thread is woven.
I grew up on the Internet, so for me nudity is very normal… I happened upon a Twitter account that was nothing but images of a girl in her underwear in the bathroom mirror. I was fascinated by the way my generation was searching to connect and remind each other that we exist moment by moment.
