Art Crush: David Byrne’s Fake iPhone Apps


Talking Heads founder David Byrne is perpetually up to something cool. If he’s not singing backing vocals on Arcade Fire records or writing his New York Times column about cycling (seriously), he’s creating wry and topical art. His latest offering is this series of fake iPhone apps which will be seen in a group show called “Social Media” alongside works by artists including Miranda July and Christopher Baker.

I would use the “Invisible Me” app all the time and I’d choose sexy mode for all business emails. That’s how you get ahead in this world.
