The elastic spring, the tired sag, and the face we just can’t shake. We are trapped inside ourselves and outside each other. In Lunar Swells, Cassandra Tytler performs through a latex mask caste from her own face in order to visually explore the social identity mask; the face we “put on” and struggle to live through. Haunting and beautiful, restrictive to the point of asphyxiation, Lunar Swells enacts the struggle of presenting our face to the world.
