Hallucination Mask

Project Description

The goal of this assignment was to make a labyrinth-like space for the body. The hallucination mask is a wearable model, transforming any space into a labyrinth by distorting the wearer’s perception. The wearer’s field of vision is consumed by a type of clear, refractive plastic that bends light. This plastic has fine corrugations on the surface that refract light, distorting everything around it. While the wearer can see the outside world, it is all warped and shifted around. It becomes a challenge to walk or move around any space, and even the most familiar places become labyrinth-like.
