Rathmichael – Week 2

Week 2 – Masks and Identity

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Continuing the theme of Identity I showed the class some images of masks, totem poles, sculptures and costumes from around the world.  We discussed the idea of ‘animism’ (that everything has a soul or essence) and started designing our own masks.  We made four quick examples and then started with photographs and tracing paper to develop the sketch’s to suit our faces.

Ran out of time today for evaluation but had a quick chat about where the project might be going.
