My name is Logan Simonson and I'm from Victoria, BC. This is my piece: Intimacy as a Construct.
This project strives to challenge cultural constructions of beauty, sexuality, nudity, and the human body itself through the deconstruction of an intimately posed manga girl. Her curves and lines are disrupted and dissected with a layered depth-map, robbing the viewer of the body they might expect -- or desire -- to see. Meanwhile, the cartoon nature of the girl resists the socially accepted normative of attraction.
