SEASON 04

IM|PERFECTION

THE SEARCH FOR PERFECTION AND WHAT THAT MIGHT BE. WHAT IS PERFECTION? DOES IT EXIST OR IS BEING PERFECT BEING IMPERFECT? SOCIETY PRAISES IMPERFECTIONS BUT LOVES PERFECTION, ITS WHAT WE ADMIRE IN HUMAN, DESIGN AND OVERALL LIFE. THIS IS A FASCINATING FACT BECAUSE BEING PERFECT IS SOMETHING CREATED BY HUMAN. NATURE DOESN’T CREATE PERFECTION, FOR EXAMPLE YOU WOULD NEVER FIND TWO COMPLETELY THE SAME ROSES. WHAT YOU WILL FIND IS TWO OF THE EXACT SAME SWEATERS. YOU CAN SEE PERFECTION AS A STANDARD HUMANITY WANTS TO LIVE UP TO.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT BEAUTY YOU CAN APPLY THIS THEORY TO. NOT ONE HUMAN IN THE WORLD IS THE SAME, NOT EVEN IDENTICAL TWINS ARE EXACTLY THE SAME. EVER SINCE THE BEGINING OF HUMANITY WE STARTED TO CREATE PERFECT FEATURES WITHIN BEAUTY. IN THE BEGINING THEY USED CLOTHING, JEWELLERY AND ACCESOIRES TO SEPERATE THEM FROM OTHERS TO GIVE THEM STATUS ASWELL AS REACHING A LEVEL OF PERFECTION. IN THE 19TH CENTURY HUMAN STARTED EXPERIMENTING WITH COSMETIC SURGERY. IN THE WESTERN WORLD THEY STARTED REMOVING RIBBS TO GET THE PERFECT TINY WAIST (PERFECT WAS REACHED WHEN YOU COULD WRAP YOUR HANDS AROUND HER WAIST TOUCHING THUMBS AND PINCKFINGERS). IN THE EASTERN WORLD WOMAN WOULD TAPE UP THERE FEET TO FIT THE MOST SMALLEST SHOES.

NOWADAYS WE ARE GOING TO EXTREME LENGTHS TO REACH PERFECTION. THINK OF ALL THE TIME SPENT IN THE GYM, GETTING OUR HAIR DONE, SHAVING, PUTTING ON MAKE UP, GETTING FAKE NAILS, HAIR AND EVEN EYELASHES, SHOPPING AND EXPRESSING OURSELVES AS INDIVUALS. NOT TO MENTION THE NUMBERS OF COSMETIC SURGERY HUMANS GO THROUGH TO REACH STANDARDS THAT WE ALL SET AS A SOCIETY. FOR A LONG TIME, ESSPECIALLY SINCE THE 1930’S WE STARTED TO ADMIRE CELEBRITIES. WHAT WE ADMIRE THE MOST IS THERE BEAUTY. THIS IS OUR PERFECT PRODUCT(LIKE THE SWEATER) AND WE AS HUMANITY WILL START TO COPY THERE FEATURES AND SHAPES TO REACH THAT STATE OF BEING THE PERFECT PRODUCT. THEY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 19TH CENTURY AND NOW IS THAT WE’VE GOT A BIG STORE FULL OFF PRODUCTS WERE WE CAN CHOOSE FROM TO MAKE US FEEL LIKE WE ARE INDIVIDUALS BUT STILL WANT TO REACH THAT STATE OF PERFECTION.

LETS BE KIND TO HUMANITY FOR ONES AND GIVE THEM WHAT THEY WANT. LINES THAT COMPLIMENT AND CREATE SHAPES, A LINIAR SKETCH OF THE HUMAN BODY WITH A COLOR THAT GIVES A FEELING OF SERENATY AND AT THE SAME TIME MAKES YOU GET NOTICED. GARMENTS WITH A DEVOREE PRINT THAT COMPLIMENTS THE HUMAN BODY AND CREATE PERFECT ANGLES AND LINES. A LITTLE HELPER ALONG THE WAY OF REACHING YOUR PERFECTION.
