Reveal your "inner" beauty
Research and exploration
After milleniums of evolution and change both in human's body structure and culture, we have slowly shaped features that are not an evolutionary advantage. More than ever the procress of reshaping our outside appearance allows us ,through procedure arraying from waxing to cosmetic surgery, to rebuild and redesign ourselves.
On this basic premise, Atavus is a plastic art research and exploration project with the goal to enhance anew vestigial structures that once made us "humans".
As a thinking exercise on the place of cosmetic in human cultures and a enhancement of now useless and long gone functional physical trait the project revolves around the paradox of creating prosthesis that recreate features that we slowly brushed away.
