is described as a "glorified photobooth," a small room with a two
way mirror that has a camera behind it. people are given a trigger remote
and the power to decide how they want to look and what they want to be doing
when the flash goes off. lin hopes to use this project to capture the "zeitgeist of
new york and beyond" and to explore the ideas of empowerment,
self awareness, superficiality and substance.
"the self portrait project begins with a metaphorical premise: that to catalyze
a positive and healing inertia in the world, one must first see one's self
honestly in the mirror and then, to take responsibility for what one sees."
