In this work Napier takes a "constructed" beauty icon - representing a Western beauty of consumerism and artificial youth - and attempts its digital reconstruction based on the traces her body has left all over the Internet. We are referring to Pamela Anderson, in her time the woman whose image became the most frequently reproduced in history thanks to the advent of the Internet.
Using these fetish images as a starting point, Napier reconstructs a 3D body of Pamela and recreates an ideal image - perhaps the one which Pamela and her surgeon are pursuing themselves. Instead of a scalpel, a mouse. Instead of skin, the screen.
