Cindy Sherman, Oops Phone Pool Float.
The Cindy Sherman 'Oops Phone Float' is a 1.82m, metallic silver phone-shaped pool float that you can bring in the water or just keep as a sculpture for your home. It is packaged in a practical swim bag with Cindy Sherman's motto: "I'd rather be swimming." Cindy Sherman is known for exposing how culture shapes appearances, shattering conformities through portrait based photography and through experimentation with apps and her @cindysherman Instagram account. This float features a selfie image that was accidentally created when two pictures merged on the artist's phone.
Cindy Sherman (American, b. 1954) is widely recognized as one of the most important and influential artists in contemporary art. Throughout her career, she has presented a sustained, eloquent, and provocative exploration of the construction of contemporary identity and the nature of representation, drawn from the unlimited supply of images from movies, TV, magazines, the Internet, and art history. Working as her own model for more than 30 years, Sherman has captured herself in a range of guises and personas which are at turns amusing and disturbing, distasteful and affecting. To create her photographs, she assumes multiple roles of photographer, model, makeup artist, hairdresser, stylist, and wardrobe mistress. With an arsenal of wigs, costumes, makeup, prosthetics, and props, Sherman has deftly altered her physique and surroundings to create a myriad of intriguing tableaus and characters, from screen siren to clown to ageing socialite.
