Okay, back to monster hand puppets:

“Me-Monsters” is a project about self-discovery. I’ve tried to discover my true self underneath my egocentric persona. This required taking off the layers of outworn ideas of my identity and delving deeper. I dissected my ego and came up with a ridiculous, obnoxious, funny-looking monster for each part. To develop the personalities of my “Me-Monsters,” I turned to creating each monster as a fabric hand puppet.

The seven "Me-Monsters" are re-created and brought to life as hand puppets using foam, fabrics, and polymer clay.
