This is my Contextual Report for my final year project. In this paper, I propose that there is no need to undergo expensive, psychologically and physically painful procedures in finding your perfect look. Essential parts of the human psyche – confidence and self-esteem – could be easily lifted and ‘healed’ not just by a few cuts and stitches made by the surgeon, but also by through various design contexts and practises.
Throughout my research I have developed two areas of interest, which are conflicting. I do like this idea of creating designs for people who feel a ‘need’ to fit into constraining stereotypes, as well as the idea – to create new objects, new forms by applying surgical procedures (taking away or adding) to already existing practises or designs.
