The Masks We Wear

 Video & Research Series

The Masks We Wear is a short experimental video, which considers how masks can be symbolic of the changeable and performative nature of human identities.

This final outcome is supported by a series of smaller works, visualising the contextual, practical, and experimental research that was essential in the development of this project.

A series of publications contextualising the link between masks, performance and identity.

A series of collages experimenting with the physicality of a mask.

Visualised results of a survey, associating identity traits with images.

An A3 poster displaying each image with the top three words associated with it.

Miniture collages showing the number of times an image has been associated with each word.

A miniture publication showing words that participants associate with their own identity.
