Modern Artemis invites us to reflect on body dysphoria and the decisions we can make about it. Two people see through the mirror and from the privacy of their bathroom, the physical characteristics of one another and their own from interacting, through exploration and testing alternatives from which they change part of their physiognomy until they reach a discovery, with which they feel satisfied as it presents an alternative to their previous life.

As part of the support I receive from the National System of Creators, I finished the post-production of the video Modern Artemis, where I explore the meaning of the body and explore changes that are usually considered physical through costumes.
The research was done through a trial on breast implants along with an exploration game with a set of underwear and Barbie dolls in order to determine that the feminine standards, established by these dolls (which triggered a lot of people who wanted to follow these standards to modifications) do not correspond to human physiognomy and are, therefore, unattainable.
