I wanted to integrate my two passions: biological anthropology and Noh theater. Both, in their own ways, study what it means to be human. One from a more physiological standpoint and the other an emotional one. This year long project was developed in two phases.
I designed and carved a set of masks based on our closest living relatives: the Great Apes.
I used location and display setup to help convey the project's message: that the lines between the human and animal world are not concrete.
