Perfect Woman Project

2007-2008

A six month project, transforming myself into the "perfect woman", based on requests from men on online dating sites.

I signed up for 60 dating sites as "The Perfect Woman" and then men were invited to describe their perfect woman. 

Then the public was invited to vote for their favorite submission and a description was selected. Over two months I transformed myself into their description, physically: changing my hair, teeth, lips, and clothing, personality: changing the way I walk, talk, live, drink, eat, and move.

The participant was flown to Tucson and we went on three dates live online with me performing as their "perfect woman."
