Masculinity Binding

Counterfactual: What if male become the second sex?

Project Focus

In the context of the counterfactual - what if the male become the second sex, I made an eye mask and a face mask for male. In this fiction society, males must cover their faces and they can only look outside from the mashed eye mask. I wanted these masks looked like decorative pieces instead of torture tools, so I designed elegant masks with the intention that man is willing to wear them because of its delicate features. 

 

Material

Brass, steel mesh, gold flake, synthetic silk, felt.
