  • A New Kind of Beauty, 2008-2010

    I’m interested in what we define as beauty, when we choose to create it ourselves.
    Beauty has always been a currency, and now that we finally have the technological means to mint our own, what choices do we make?
    Is beauty informed by contemporary culture? By history? Or is it defined by the surgeon’s hand? Can we identify physical trends that vary from decade to decade, or is beauty timeless?
    When we re-make ourselves, are we revealing our true character, or are we stripping away our very identity?
    Perhaps we are creating a new kind of beauty. An amalgam of surgery, art, and popular culture? And if so, are the results the vanguard of human induced evolution?

Philip Toledano visualizes the political wishes and paranoia of contemporary America. He himself creates suits of, for instance, rifles and McDonald's packing material, in order to present an emotional state as a physical extension of the body.
