The Perfection Aspiration
'The Perfection Aspiration' is a body of work aims to challenge and confront the current pressures imposed on women to conform to an idealised body shape. Through Alice's own experience as a woman she used photography and the use of an online blog to create an awareness which will inform viewers as to how such pressures can damage lives and ultimately result in illness. Eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia have become significantly more common in Western culture. Alice developed an eating disorder through extreme dieting in a bid to reach the idealised slender female form made so prominent in the media today. Alice hopes to inspire change by revealing the dangerous and harmful effects of conforming.
