Today I went to Kings Cross Library and looked at books in preparation for next week when were doing sculpture. I found a lot of books on sculpture that I found of interest. I found masks of interest in particular as I thought about how a lot of people wear them and carry a different persona. I was fascinated by this, I liked the style of several pictures I found in books which I photocopied and placed them into my sketchbook. I was interested in how people wear masks to look better or hide 'imperfections', other subjects in life are shown to have a better appearance or 'glorified' (hyped up) to be better than they are, e.g food, sex, drugs, money, (Porn, Food Porn, Prostitution) But then people may have different opinions on this.
