What do we strive for when we look for a better appearance? What are the features that make a face unattractive or attractive? What is desirable, unwanted, or normal? “In Search of Perfection” is a clay animation about the perceptions of beauty and body modification. The artwork visualizes a beauty ideal through animation and interviews made with plastic surgeons. The film reflects what a perfect face looks like, as the plasticine version of artist's head is molded slowly towards this beauty ideal, following the surgeons' comments.
