suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Feyrouz ASHOURA: The “Breathtakers” is a hypothetical story about the evolution of the human anatomy. We are stuck between two eras, a time where the human kind has come to face one of the biggest changes of its history. As I am very inspired by the human being and the structure of our body itself, I constantly am in a pursuit of converting the ugliness I can recognize in humans to a so far undiscovered beauty. The whole idea behind this project was built all around the respiratory system, while I imagined it would undergo a mutation to follow the need to breathe under water by pushing our anatomy to another extent of our development, a transition between two kinds—the fusion triggered by the terrestrial and the underwater world that blooms into a newborn species.
