“Through the Mask was my BA diploma project at the Zurich University of the Arts, and it includes a 200-page publication, a 48-page lookbook photographed by Simon Harbegger and a scarf design.
“Show and hide, open and protect, associate and dissociate—these opposites and transitions determine the essence of masks. At the center of the visual exploration are three modern masks whose different details are depicted on both the outside and the inside. The publication illustrates the phenomenon of the mask: recognizing that it can be based on cultural and social norms, values within a social system or created from individual circumstances. Immerse yourself in the mask and discover that many different facets may emerge. Individual experiences can take place regarding everyday masks and disguises in the interpersonal realm.
“The scarf design enables potential owners to decide for themselves which parts of the scarf should be shown on the outside and which should remain hidden. This plats with visual and emotional perception while expanding our possibilities for individual diversity.”
