Self-Esteem Shapers

A growing number of young people feel that they do not have control over the world around them, turning instead to the micro-management of their own bodies.

Obsessive behaviour and body issues are harmlessly packaged as ‘healthy living’, the body endlessly mediated and publicised on social media. ‘Self-Esteem Shapers’ explores this behaviour through a line of domestic exercise equipment, the vanity and absurdity of their purpose built into the design. A series of short films accompanies the set, playful vignettes and subject specialists paired to analyse a difficult situation with biting humour.
