Made to Display
Made to Display is a project that explores the different features of mannequins, in order to capture their subtle unique qualities; appreciating the effort that went into designing them. My project questions the ideology of mannequins in the new world we live in, as they have become ubiquitous items we simply gaze upon. While many processes go into the design of mannequins, is it promoting a negative body image for profit? Feminine mannequins predominantly focus on a very small proportion of the female anatomy which flashes an unrealistic after image on modern female society. Made to Display highlights the sexualisation of mannequins which compares a thin manufactured physique against the vast variety of woman’s beauty. These images snatch open the curtains on the unreachable goal the retail industry brands onto women kind. Perhaps it’s time to re-imagine body representation for women.
