Do not read this


The first obscene publications act came into force in Britain in 1857 with the aim to:

“Protect women, children and the feeble minded from material deemed likely to corrupt them or of a nature calculated to shock the common feelings of decency and well regulated minds”

We have decided to examine the ideas that censored books explore, with the aim to discover the level of appropriateness when people are presented with the same ideas already born in the book, but materialised onto a mannequin, then embodied on the human body.
