To document this, artisan invites the making community to make, remodel, rework, embellish and decorate the simple home-made surgical mask as a creative reflection of the current global experience. Once made, you can submit your mask(s) into artisan’s ‘ABOUTFACE’ online exhibition.
Make, remodel, rework, embellish and decorate your mask as your creative reflection of the present universal experience.
"Surgical masks carry great meaning. Filtering more than our breath, they can partially obscure our identity while protecting ‘us’ from ‘it’, and ‘them’ from ’us’. We want you to bring your understanding and experience of this extraordinary time to the surface, using the mask as a starting point." Cassandra Lehman, artisan
Once your mask is made, submit it to our ‘ABOUTFACE’ online exhibition. All submitted masks will be documented and uploaded.
In acknowledgement of the indiscriminate nature of this crisis, to make this a level playing field, individual works will only be identifiable by the title of the work and a number. A separate list of all makers’ names will accompany the works.
"These masks will endure and serve as a document for right now, for what we are going through and who we really are, in the face of Covid-19." Cassandra Lehman, artisan
