Cautionary Tales

The images above show stills from a series of viral animations with the working title 'Cautionary Tales'. The limericks, all of which were written by me, are satirical warnings about the dangers of plastic surgery. For the accompanying imagery I visualised the limericks, creating surrealistic collages with my own photographs of people and objects. The rationale behind using these objects such as balloons and Rubix cubes, was to further emphasise the ridiculousness of extreme body enhancement. The beauty standards thrust upon the younger generations by celebrity culture are completely unattainable. Although this project has a satirical note, the message is quite serious; striving for aesthetic perfection will ruin your body. To view more of my work visit my Behance portfolio page.
