A Fitting

By author:

"A Fitting is a Kinect-based art installation that explores the relationship between cultural and personal expectations of body image. The game is an interactive theatrical performance where the player takes the role of a young woman in front of a large mirror, with an audience watching her in its reflection. The audience and the game itself prompts the player to twist, contort and bend his/her body in order to progress. Doing so receives approval from the audience and game, but at the cost of the players discomfort."


I came across this while reading an article submitted by the two women who are working on the project on The point of the project is to minimize the effect of image conciousness and objectification in popular media, including video games, on girls.
