Initiation was a sacred ritual in human tribes in order to train young adults to become full member of the group. They used face paint to represent their changed status in the community. In our current culture each individual should build their own role in the society by releasing and gaining new social connections. That is represented in my artworks with touching hands (of importrant people in my life). In the middle screen my face become visible by virtual face paint. This is how I create my social mask that represents my function in the community.
