A - Body Image

Project Name:
Positive Body Image

Client / Client contact information:
National Eating Disorder Education
https://nedc.com.au/eating-disorders/eating-disorders-explained/body-image/

Project:
Create a piece of art that promotes an awareness around the positive & negative issues of body image

Background / Overview:
Body  image is a combination of the thoughts and feelings that you have about  your body. Body image may range between positive and negative  experiences, and one person may feel at different times positive or  negative or a combination of both. Body image is influenced by internal  (e.g. personality) and external (e.g. social environment) factors.

What is the objective, the purpose of the art piece?
Body  dissatisfaction occurs when a person has persistent negative thoughts  and feelings about their body. Body dissatisfaction is an internal  emotional and cognitive process but is influenced by external factors  such as pressures to meet a certain appearance ideal. Body  dissatisfaction can drive people to engage in unhealthy weight-control  behaviours, particularly disordered eating. This places them at  heightened risk for developing an eating disorder.

What do we want to say?
In  recent years, one of the common external contributors to body  dissatisfaction is social media. Social media portrays images that are  filtered and edited and tends to show the ‘highlights’ of a person and  their life. These images promote an unrealistic appearance ideal that  cannot be achieved in real life.

Target Market?
All ages

Additional info & insights:
There  is no right or wrong when it comes to weight, shape, size and  appearance. Challenging beauty ideals and learning to accept your body  shape is a crucial step towards positive body image. We have the power  to change the way we see, feel and think about our bodies.

Production Information and Job Specs:
Final  Design is up to you, remember you are completing an installment piece  that will be displayed in various exhibit halls & public spaces.
