I like to see a mask as a box where stories have been stored before its own existence. Each of these stories are pulled out by the ones who connect with it and can be told or perceived in individual or collective ways.
This is how I imagine my mask, a box, a container of histories, fantasies, dreams and emotions on hold until someone will let them out. As its creator I can rule the way it looks but not the way it will be perceived.
This mask was part of the show Masters of Disguise as part of Brompton Design District 2019 presented by SEE••DS and curated by M-L-XL.
Dowels is a wall light formed by the combination of wooden dowels with tube light bulbs. All elements share similar shapes and they seem to play a game of “hide & seek”. While switched o the white bulbs seem to hide between the wooden dowels but once switched on the wood seemS to hide behind the light.
