Perfection

Leonardo Da Vinci‚Äôs Vitruvian Man symbolises ‘ideal’ human proportions, reflecting the Renaissance fascination with symmetry, balance, and the intersection of art and science. Exquisite Human challenges this idea of perfection, celebrating human diversity through a playful and often hilarious interactive artwork. While still embodying the interplay of art and science, the piece utilises modern technology and the vibrant atmosphere of a music festival to create an accessible and inclusive experience.

The identity of the installation reflects its overall concept. The dynamic logo represents the diversity of humans, flexing in shape and size. The graphic language used in the animations and CTA is informed by the Vitruvian Man, and encourages festival goers to become co-creators, leaving their mark on the installation and blurring the lines between artist and observer.
