Female Extension

An Ongoing Project by Marie-Julie Bourgeois

Female Extension is a potential mono sexual territory. Artefacts or "Aliens" generated by image analysis and 3D real-time reconstruction are used to add a pair of breasts to every spectator. This installation addresses issues of sexual identity, the transformation of bodies through plastic surgery, as well as the place of women in a patriarchical society. It offers the viewer the possibility to virtually experience either transformation into a woman or the enhancement of feminine traits through breast augmentation.
