The Selfiexploratory project by Selfie City looks at the phenomenon of the selfie by examining 3,200 Instagram images, allowing you to sort them from gender, to pose, to mood.

Selfiecity investigates selfies using a mix of theoretic, artistic and quantitative methods:

We present our findings about the demographics of people taking selfies, their poses and expressions.

Rich media visualizations (imageplots) assemble thousands of photos to reveal interesting patterns.

The interactive selfiexploratory allows you to navigate the whole set of 3200 photos.

Finally, theoretical essays discuss selfies in the history of photography, the functions of images in social media, and methods and dataset.
