“In the current century, beauty is treated as a commodity. My work represents the objectification of beauty and the price the media places on it, at the cost of dehumanization. Soap is a basic commodity of beauty and is able to mirror its life – the gradual deterioration, disfigurement, developing wrinkles and at the end- its death.”
