1991 Masks and suits

I must have done more than the things I found pictures of. But what I remember as the most fun was making all those rigid masks for Susan Taslimi and the Volvo dummy. I onder where those things are now...
More personal projects More personal projects More personal projects More personal projects More personal projects More personal projects Together with Gunnar Lundgren I did a crash test dummy for a Volvo commercial. We were under extreme time presure when we did it so we built it on a divers suit and it got incredibly hot. The guy suffered like crazy. He sweated so much so we had to put newspapers on the floor so he wouldn't slip in his own sweat. This was the first time I made somehting that was shown outside Sweden and that was a cool feeling.
The only molded pieces was the hands, feet and head. The rest we built with sheetfoam in layers. The surface was sealed with thickened latex. We also added some bolts of vacu form plastic. For the shoot. More personal projects More personal projects The sculpt for a steet performer The finished foam head. I would love to make this one in silicone instead. This is Susan Taslimi in Medea. She played all the parts herself in masks I made for her. Here she is as the narrator.
And as the revenge demon. For a play I can't remember I made this latex wig.

This little girl was the biggest diva I have ever met in my whole life.
