Art Video: A Day-Dreaming of Masked Identity

Duration: 3 minutes

It also was a comment on society that we all hide our real selves behind the mask of what is ‘normal’ or ‘acceptable’ in our particular community or culture.

So here you take a trip into the mind of a ‘faceless’ person and see the world turned around and thrown back at you from a different view; come into my day-dream why don’t you…
