Video of Human Faces and Skulls

Hi everyone! As usual, my blog is suffering, and I loathe this. I had an opening at Hilliard Gallery in June, and have since been focused on a private commission. Hopefully I will be able to share the process of this commission once it's completed, as it's a posthumous double portrait and therefore requires detective-like strategies.

I've also just returned from a visit to Mexico City. While I was there, I visited the Museo Nacional de Antropologia and was fascinated by the various skulls on display. I took a video of an exhibit there which has images of skulls that fade into images of human faces as you move across the room.

Often I have my students try to overlay a drawing of a skull on top of a photo of a person, so I found this display very intriguing and useful. I hope you find the portions I recorded enjoyable; I did my best to hold the camera steady.
