Identity Robbed 2017

A mask

Made from textile, steel, and copper.

Supervised by Doris Maninger and Sana Khalil.

Evolution has programmed people to use faces as the main way to identify each other. Cliche how for robbing a bank the criminal pulls a sock over its head was the start of this mask.

 

Hiding one’s face gives a strong signal of being up to no good.

Some nations have even taken steps to ban covering the face with accessories. This conflicts with the idea that wearing an accessory would show the personality of the wearer.
