In the video work, the mobile phone uses its frontal camera to film itself, creating a self-portrait (or "selfie"). When the frontal camera is pointed at the phone's display, the image begins to copy itself infinitely, creating the effect of video feedback. As a result, the interface of the recording menu (including the timecode and buttons) becomes an object within the video work.

This work builds upon the tradition of media experiments with video feedback established by Nam Jun Paik, and it was also inspired by MC Escher's engraving "Circle Limit."

There is also an installation version of this work for exhibitions.
