Two of Nancy Burson’s iconic diptychs are in included in EXIT (Issue #48), which is titled “Artificial Beauty.” In her essay “Someday We’ll All Be Cyborgs,” which is included in the magazine, Rosa Olivares writes:

“The pursuit of beauty meets with the desire for eternal youth at the doors of operating rooms in clinics and hospitals. That atavistic idea of beating time, of preventing our bodies, our faces, from coming undone, losing smoothness, shine and beauty, seems increasingly tangible. Nevertheless, they inadvertently become what we do not believe, what we do not want to be, because the evrlasting problem is time, its passage, and the impossibility of reliving it, of stopping it, of controlling it.”
