Lea Schönfelder, Peter Lu – 2014
Perfect Woman is a sarcastic antithesis to the stereotypical role models and social demands with which women – but also men – are confronted on a daily basis. The game was inspired by personality questionnaires in women's magazines.
You start the game as a fetus in the womb. A few seconds later, at the age of seven, you have to set the first path for the future. Are you the ambitious student, the street child without rights, or a rebel? The task now is to imitate various predefined poses with your own body. Career opportunities in the next phases of life depend on successful imitation. Those who fail too often die sooner, and can then try again to meet their own or other people's demands. »Perfect Woman« is a game about celebrating diversity and choice instead of condemning conformity.
