My face at last! Just in time for Summer School …
My face/mask is finally there! It is rather difficult to take photos from it and I have tried my best.
The final mask is slightly different from my paper mock-up – it includes four levels instead of three – but all in all I have followed this mock-up rather faithfully. The mask is made up of 7 parts showing 4 different fabric textures.
The background is a 2 mm acrylic sheet cut to measure. I chose acrylic since I wanted to see the different parts of the mask floating. Overall size, including the empty areas, is approximately 30 x 45 cms.
Parts 5, 6 and 7 are on the background level and glued directly onto the acrylic sheet.
Level one is 2 cm high (part 1), level two is 3 cm high (part 4) and level three is 4 cm high (parts 2 and 3).
On the back of the acrylic sheet I glued square acrylic feet to create a distance between the face and its supporting surface which may be a wall, a table or a window pane for example.
In this first photo I placed my mask on a marble floor.
In this picture the face was fixed to a frosty window pane which allows the passing of light from behind.
This is the mask seen from the back.
Here follow pictures from details, the first shown on a dark wooden surface, the other three against a window.
Tomorrow the technical information, evaluation and records.
