Perfect body


This digitally manipulated photo shows my torso in an imaginary cyber world, in which I am a blend of robot and woman. Silver screws glint along my spine, a testament to my scoliosis surgery, and all of the pain, both physical and emotional, that I carry perfectly. My body is portrayed in all its perfectly imperfect glory, shining brightly in this abstract and surreal world. Meticulously placed metal screws grace my spine, the plates anchoring my physical body in an imaginary cyber reality. Despite the hardware that carry my skeleton, my being is uniquely human, perfectly imperfect.
