"Ultrabodies" is a project about that apparent self-acceptance that is
accomplished only when we end to become totally unrecognizable,
even to ourselves. If, on one side, this project can be frivolous
regarding its pure form, it is actually the rawest and most painful one
on its message side. Behind those funny and cute faces, digitally
manipulated and distorted until they became unrecognizable, you can
find the weaknesses of a woman who is not able to accept herself as
she is, as well as a society that craves for reaching beauty but loses its
true meaning. Everyday I see over-manipulated images on the
internet: soothed faces in a manner that skin pores are erased and so
such surfaces resemble plastic, like dolls. Polymers dyed with airbrush.
