dys·mor·phia (dis-mōr-fē-ă) Abnormality of shape. My piece is inspired by the contemporary obsession with physical perfection. Specifically, plastic surgery as a means of reaching this desired state of “perfection”. I chose to use highly visible curved shapes and mixed materials to convey this sense of the curvilinear body and its distinctive parts. Although many strive to better their bodies, I wanted these curved shapes to precisely fit into the design. They serve as parts of the whole that require no alteration, no surgery, solely appreciation.
