The Perfect Human

See link to a short 13 minute film 'Det perfekte menneskemade in 1967 by Jorgan Leth. The cold objectification of the human only seeks to emphasise the humanity of the subject. A metaphor about the strength of the human spirit to defeat the boundaries imposed or self-imposed. Its un-nerving to watch oneself from behind the glass.

If you have never seen it, take a look and if you know it, its worth seeing again.

Here is a new series of a model shaving his head, which has been in the planning stage for a long time. A larger version is available here
