Shirky’s Eye

The first picture is scanned from the original painting, and the rest are its digital iterations.

This painting is based on Clay Shirky‘s Twitter profile picture, which is shown below.

Below are pictures of the painting when it’s not done.

This painting is later utilized as a part of the White Twitter Board project, where the latest tweet by @cshirky is manually updated on a whiteboard outside Clay Shirky’s office at NYU Shanghai.

And a series of works of Shirky’s eye are later created in 2017.
