Are We Still Beautiful?

Beauty is subjective and can be defined in many ways, there is no clear form. Judging levels of beauty can arise from personal preference, social constructions and upbringing. 'Are we still beautiful?' is a series of A6 risograph prints representing icons of the 60s and 70s and how their faces are constructed in relation to the golden decagon mask. When placed upon the face of someone who is regarded beautiful, the mask should fit their face perfectly. I wanted to test this theory on these specific women to gain an insight into wether the people we adore for their beauty actually fit the mask.
