The interactive project, Perfect 10, is a commentary on the fast growing trend among young women in Asia to get plastic surgery. Statistic shows that, in South Korea, one in five women have went under the knifes in pursuit of the ideal appearance which is racialized with the angelo-phied standards of beauty – double-lidded eyes, straight pointy nose, slender legs…etc. The latter surgery is especially horrifying. The procedure actually severs a nerve in the leg to make the muscle atrophy, causing a more slender look.
It is an old and tired debate to weight the prod and cons of cosmetic surgery or define the meaning of beauty. Perfect 10 solved the problem by creating a catalog of facial features from famous Asian actresses and super models. The user could randomize their looks by simply shouting into the mirror.
