From Photoshop to plastic surgery there lies a transaction of reality from the virtual to the actual; from digital image manipulation to physical body sculpting, a distance for explosion. What imploded in the virtual in the form of fantasy has now returned in the form of violent corporal mutation. This is a commodification of the human body, the plastic body as such, is the perfect body that everybody achieved with Photoshop and other image manipulation software in virtual reality and that has reached the physiological body with the augmentation tools of medical technologies,
The human body is now reproduced following a set of standards, measurements and beauty references to fit under one of the pre-set categories dictated by the mass culture. The result of this computed type of production is an unprecedented uniformity. Everybody looks like everybody now, in actual reality there is a set of categories that each group of people fits in exactingly. This capitalist culture industry of mass production is still triumphant today but with new, more powerful, technologies of augmentation that are employed to facilitate this corporal metamorphosis. This implies that something went wrong in the use of new technologies. Today the production of sameness is more then ever locking us towards a catastrophic image of mass-produced disfigured bodies where violence persists as the main patent of post virtual-reality image.
