Since man started counting, man started to index, categorise and prioritize. An apparently harmless process, but with the introduction of the dynamic database, human deviation seems to have been excluded as ‘fault’ and it becomes increasingly difficult to remain individual within a quantitative system.
The Project Foldable People is a study in serial beauty; currently an installation of figures and packaging boxes using measurements and correlations of the different parts of the human body as data structures for the serial design of both the sculptures and boxes. It investigates the idea of manageable and proportionable beauty in our categorised society. Increasingly, people need to meet strict social, economical and bodily requirements in order to be a functional and acknowledged member of society. Diversity is becoming standardized. I am concerned with the cultural, humanistic and artistic consequences of this phenomenon.
