This project started precisely in the opposite way, as I was doodling hypothetical state-enforced markings that everybody had to wear, in order to be easily identified. Very much 1984 type of feeling. Then, what came to mind was the human defiance against control, be it active or passive. I realized that the more interesting topic was insurgence and how could it be masked and allowed to go on.
What if people do not want to be identified by machines? How far can they go without wearing a mask?
This project looks into that question from the point of view of cosmetics, so often used as personal expression of beauty, now converted into a cloak of sorts
