Veils, curtains, and encounters with The Other.

Veils and curtains have been in my wheel house for a while. I thought I had moved passed them but in a recent exchange with some fellow makers I became inspired to toy with these elements as they relate to theatre. Here is another blog I am keeping-Thoosa, it is a sailboat project. I used plastic sheets for the sail design and explored concepts like pioneering and unknown places. The latest entry was a realization of plastic sheeting as a trope for quarantine and hygiene and the dark side to state authority. The PBS Art 21 interview with Paul McCarthy has him saying that hygiene is the religion of fascism.
