Operation Barbie

In our society beauty and the outside is becoming more and more important. We are able to transform ourselves into more attractive humans by plastic surgery. Maybe Barbie was more than just an pretty looking doll. That triggered my curiosity. I made a ‘3D CT-scan’ out of my lovely old doll and doing so, exterminating the fake image and freeing myself.
