Performative Avatar: Human Objectification

Platform: Unity, Vuforia and Xcode

Could human body become tools? I have always been obsessed with the idea of human body objectification, as it has such as strong implication that blurs the boundary between real human and their avatars.

If we deprive the uniqueness of being “me“, freeing our body parts to be duplicated, folded, twisted, cut off and enlarged, and treating our body parts as something functional like tools, would the concept of being human changed?

Inspired by the idea of objectifying human body, I transformed my avatar into three common items: a spiral bound of a book, a fan and a pair of earphone.

Earphone (pwd: avatars)
Spiral Bound (pwd: avatars)
Fan (pwd: avatars)
