The Mask Series I

This is a strange red mask that hangs amongst other masks in one of the walls of my bedroom, which I will bring out one by one through this series. Somehow I associate masks with identity. The masks we wear and the identities we share. It is usually only after the first 30 minutes of talk does a person actually start to pull off his mask and begins exposing his/her identity. Often no one has patience to listen to another for more than 30 minutes and more often no one cares to speak to another for more than 30 minutes lest their mask be removed and their true identity exposed... and hence the impression is made on the mask rather than the real face within the first 30 minutes and judgements made about the person. What really happens is that you have judged the mask not the face. Think!..
