Gundega Strauberga & Manon Meyer – Franky Tongues
Design Academy Eindhoven | Man And Activity & Man And Leisure
A tongue which can speak several languages, or makes funnier jokes, who wouldn’t want that?
We are bombarded with the message that we should or could improve our appearance: in the media, in apps and in blogger tutorials providing us with the best tricks for reshaping our appearance. Are these images damaging our ability to feel comfortable in our own skin? Are they warping our standards of what a body should look like? Does a ‘better’ body mean that we are better persons? This project illustrates the irony of present-day beauty standards and the paradoxical decisions we sometimes make. Replace your original tongue with one that provides you with superpowers, become a better version of yourself, and improve your performance as a human being!
