I have a particular interest in prosthetics. Metamorphosing the human
figure affords me greater possibilities to express images beyond reality
as I am fascinated by appearance bridging the boundary between real and
unreal. Therefore, I am very keen to challenge and explore the concept
of imaginable unreality.
It was my
final work on my degree. For this project, we created own idea on our
individual theme, which was developed from a chosen text. I chose ‘Water
Babies’, which is an old fairytale, and transferred the world to
under water as the stage of my story.
This work meant to look as a form of creatures that may live in somewhere
has not been found. They might exist both on the land and in the sea.
I made a prosthetic tail, and a latex skin piece, which attached to the
tail also a bold cap to complete the image.
These works showed the co-existence of two personalities within one individual,
creating distorted face prosthetic pieces. The challenge was to project
a distorted face on to the actual face, so as to express the existence
of another personality within the individual.
I made six different distorting foam pieces from which slides were made
for the projection. These two photos are taken from a series of the works.
They were all applied with a bald-cap and projected on to the face, which
was also wearing a bald-cap.
