‘Blisters and Nails’ compares and examines the preposterous ideals of the reality and the fantasy. It attempts to question both the real and unreal, creating an imbalance of ideas as well as ridiculing both fantasy and reality. The use of my own body as the subject highlights the private processes we put ourselves through as women, as well as the relationship we have with our own bodies and how we see ourselves from the outside. The project highlights the insecurities we find ourselves obsessed with as well as the many things we do to our appearance in order to try to achieve the unachievable.
