Our exploration of mask making was based on the works presented in the exhibition Third Realm, which was presented from September 4th to November 8th, 2020. Instructions for creating similar projects from home can be found in either of the following four project pages: Making Faces, Making Faces II, Making Faces III and Making Faces IV.
The above image is an installation photograph of the exhibition space, featuring three visitors wearing the masks they created on November 7th, while standing in front of Ghost Mask (2009) by Apichatpong Weerasethakul.
