Two women pose for a selfie in front of a crime scene of a detective examining a body. This reimagining was inspired by reports of insensitive people deliberately seeking attention by uploading selfies taken near the Lindt Cafe siege in Sydney in 2014, a tragedy that resulted in the deaths of two hostages and an Islamic extremist gunman who had suffered from mental health problems.

The background setting is a sterile generic public building that is not disimilar to the Lindt Cafe site and the only colours are the women's tops, a symbol of their need to grab attention in a social media driven world where people's attention is a highly sought commodity.
