War-paint. Camouflage. Concealment. Act of self-expression or of belonging to a group. Representation, reflection, or pretense? For protection sometimes; actually often. A curtain, a screen, a veil behind which to hide. A shield, disguise or figment. Often fanciful though - ones persona, like war-paint. Masks and avatars. Behind each, a person, with hopes and fears, with feelings often much deeper than the side they show; actually, always.

MASK, a short animation, using the faces of many avatars from Second Life:-

Really love the short film Mask, today I talked baout it on my radio show in CA, USA its a FM station out in Northen Califonia, www.kmud.org
I gave out your blog address over the air. I found your film from looking at art in second life web site blogs, I am really intested in screening some of your shorts in a small Gallery up here. (no $ its really small) I may put together a real life show of art from Second life. I just started checking it out. My show is called the Digital Divide and if I could interveiw you via second life and then relay that over my FM radio station that would be really cool.
thats for excellent work!

I saw this in the 80s with Godley and Cream's Cry, it would have been neat to see an SL version of that.
