Image from Dada. In the same way that these hybrid creatures represent people being brainwashed through what they see on television, I want my hybrid creatures to represent people suffering from mental health issues which affect their self esteem (i.e eating disorders) being brainwashed by what they see as beautiful.
This image goes really well with our current self portrait project. It easily incorporates many different aspects of a person in what appear to be newspaper clippings.

...SHOW ME YOU “I DONT GET IT. WOMEN ARE GORGEOUS. THE FEMALE BODY A FEAST. WHY DO PEOPLE SHOOT WOMEN WITH THE INTENTION TO DELETE ALL IMAGINARY POSSIBLE FLAWS? WHY NOT SHOOT THEM IN SUCH A WAY THE RESULT LOOKS LIKE A CELEBRATION OF WOMEN? A PICTURE THAT LOOKS LIKE A PARTY FOR YOUR EYES AND EVERYONE IS INVITED! I TRIED TO PRACTICE WHAT I PREACH TODAY. SHOOT WOMEN. BITES LIP*. CANT WAIT TO GET THOSE PICS DEVELOPED.” — LA FILLE D’O
