A video based on the early work of Bruce Nauman (Art Makeup -1967) and of Peter Campus (Three Transitions -1973) . I am wearing a mask that represents a savage. I apply green paint, then black paint. I have then keyd the green to white so that It appears that I am putting on white then black makeup. The notion of masking as well as erasing symbols of identitiy , as well as the play on blackface are my focus of interest.
