I got a mask cast I was happy with and so went about trying to get some images of how it might be used in context with the potential performance I am proposing.
I painted the mask with foundation to make it match my skin tone and amplify the realism.
Here im trying to convey the sadness this character might feel now their features have been stolen from them for cosmetic purposes.
Here i’m staging the protest segment that would feature in the performance I am preposing. I want to highlight the dangers of the cosmetic industry but in a dystopian type setting, where measures are taken to new levels of extreme in the name of beauty. A possible insight into our future. A peek into what we could become if we don’t stop ourselves from exploiting the venerable for the cosmetic industry.
