The two picture-perfect women look dehumanized, possibly cloned or otherwise evolved into automatons, timeless figures. The women do not seem unhappy, likely leading mindless and soulless, painless and pointless lives. The gauze on their bodies may reflect their evolution. The sterility of their existence is further underscored by the bright, almost surgical, light that floods the scene. ⁣ ⁣

Conceived and undertaken years before the advent of the coronavirus and its ensuing climate, Martin Llamedo has proven himself eerily prescient of alienating trends in modern society and offers us a sobering glimpse and stark warning, of what we may become if we no longer honor our perfect imperfection as humankind.⁣
