What (and who) humans have exalted is an
ever-changing standard. Artists help us understand this fluidity by immortalizing what
their societies considered most beautiful.
Our Bodies Are Art aims to give perspective on the breadth of body types found in art, and to show users how they are represented in this bigger picture. This application will take a photo of you, compare your body proportions against pieces in an art database, and surface your closest matches. It is designed for female-identifying users, but will work for anyone.
This site is made by Isabel Lee as her Senior Project under advisor Julie Dorsey. It was built using the TensorFlow.js library BodyPix.
