In the Greco-Roman theatre     an actor would sit with a lamp before a character mask, studying it in order to become it, and then becoming it to a supernatural degree...   

I make these masks with this old trasnformative power in mind. A charged mask can blur the lines between Self and Other, an experience which can change you for the good. If you were the Trickster Raven say, you might suddenly feel at a visceral & irrefutable level that humans have never had complete dominion over the natural world.

Maskwearing is heady stuff and isn't contraindicated for hardcore users
of Soma, meaning just about
everyone in Western culture.
