To be a mannequin is appealing. We are sometimes asked to give in to the temptation of the ideal, of the sculpted body and opinionless mind, is sometimes asked of us. We are taught that the world will accept us if we are more accommodating, more available, more less of ourselves. But through our relentless flaws we are inevitably faced with how impossibly far we were willing to go to become plastic. We honor this effort.
