The "Human Products" series is inspired by and expanding upon the Barcode Art of Scott Blake. In that regard it is a "meta-art" project.
It concerns our functionality in modern society as 'Human Products' that have to sell themselves to others as good as possible in order to survive, as well as the obsession with plastic/flawless beauty that turns people into more attractive and thus more easily "sold", products (I have opted to use the term "Modoll" for this aspect of the project, a cross of "Model" and "Doll").
The project was originally conceived as a self-portrait by me (in 2014, which was also exhibited) and it was further expanded with the creative involvement of Irene Astral and the help of the models Agapi and Danai. The expansion is telling an alternate universe story, which is essentially a metaphor for our current world. In it, the Modolls, beautiful young artificially made women, are mass-produced and sold in store windows. After expiration, they are stored in warehouses to be thrown away or be used as future repair parts for the newer Modoll models.
The third part of the project took a fantasy twist, as we explored the "Modolls" concept a bit more, with a 3-part photo-story of a Modoll gaining self-esteem and trying to escape. (all in 2014)
