The Most Beautiful Women (replacing faces)

Brief description

Faces of Asian American woman are imposed on Hiram Powers neoclassical busts and sculptures in marble replacing faces of Caucasian women who have been depicted as the western cultural ideal of beauty. With the artwork the artist questions norms of beauty:

"Through deepfake technology, I have been able to create video that imposes my own visage as an Asian American woman onto these sculptures representing the western cultural ideal." (1)
