in preparation for mask-making
a little later than i might have liked, i found information about cameron jamie, who’s first new york solo exhibition featured beautiful krampuslike masks (2010).
i went back a few years more and i found something more to wish i had seen: jamie’s 2006 exhibit at the walker in minneapolis, and regular screenings of his film kranky klaus.
all this was more interesting than looking at links about milk-jug masks for children. i was still a little stuck on that. my hope is that anyone who makes a krampus mask uses whatever techniques they want to use… but i have no list of techniques to draw on myself, so the “envisioning” part was a little dull.
but then, a friend sent a fascinating TED talk my way — how about making masks… out of kombucha mothers?
