In the ¬†era of the selfie, this project challenges our scrutinized ¬†self-image. Leanne van Hees turned to the Rijksmuseum to research the ¬†concept of beauty throughout the ages. The painted portraits by the Old ¬†Masters were a status symbol for both the artists and their models, and are ¬†still seen as magnificent. Playfully addressing our obsession with the ¬†perfect picture to post, Leanne designed a digital tool that creates ¬†portraits of today‚Äôs faces in the style of the admired paintings. Fed with ¬†the Rijksmuseum‚Äôs digital collection, a cleverly written code renders your ¬†reflection into a timeless beauty; are you ready to see yourself as a ¬†precious piece of art? ‚Äć

‚ÄúThe ¬†timeless beauty collection defies our current beauty standard‚ÄĚ
