The reality of 2018 and beyond is that, in some ways, the fake has already become almost more ‘natural’ than the organic. We are used to fake foods, flavours, everything is presented to us packaged or processed and bodies have become more altered in the ways of cosmetic surgery. It has all become a seamless part of everyday life so why not a fake Supermodel.

The Washington Post recently reported that soon, the most beautiful people in the world may no longer be human.

Cameron-James Wilson, an innovative young London photographer created Shudu, the world’s very first digital influencer and model and right now She has 137K, and her following is growing fast.

He created Shudu after teaching himself 3D, using online resources and Youtube tutorials

Here is what he had to say about his creation
“Shudu represents what I’ve always seen as beautiful, but something I don’t see often enough,” Wilson said

“Although there’s a slight change happening now, more people need to question, what really is beautiful”

“A lot of what we see in media is trying to be less real, with filters and makeup”

“Shudu is coming from the other direction”

“She’s a fantasy trying to break through into reality and I have plans to help her do so”

looking at shudu. one cant help but wonder, Is the extinction of the modelling industry imminent?

Possibly, considering the fact that digital creatures can be controlled, they never need a holiday and stay perfectly flawless forever unlike real models.
