I don’t get to read Adam Zucker’s posts as often as I’d like – also true for many fellow artists I follow & really like — mostly for the fortunate reasons that I’m so busy with my own art, keeping physically active at 70, and have lots of family around — but as always glad when I do.
Not necessarily easy or light reading, but so enlightening, particularly in uniting science and art.
This is an especially timely post, dealing with smatterings of information from, as he puts it – “inspired [by] one of my late night sojourns down the internet rabbit hole” 😊 – the use of masks through out history – “three general qualities: to protect, disguise and transform” – with lots of visual and detailed examples.
I think you can tell, via Adam’s own mask pictured above, these are not one’s ordinary off the shelf mask selections. The stories and information are for me super interesting.
And, as Adam puts it, “The stories that masks tell helps us connect to worldly and otherworldly experiences.”
Be safe everyone! Stay creative!
