Masks: Garden of Unearthly Delights.
Click background for slideshow.
A commission to design two masks came to us via director and photographer Timothy Saccenti's latest project, 'The Garden of Unearthly Delights'. In it, two figures convey a story of darkness, impossibility, fertility, and of course, a final moment of delivery.
Looking for a discord between the natural and synthetic, we designed two masks that could receive horse hairs within the face of the photoresin shells. The result is a meeting of the exact and the hairy, and the natural and near-figure.
This uncanny material relationship has inspired new ideas at Commonwealth- ones which attempt to embed dense material relationships within future furniture design projects.
