2003 Brains, animals and silicone

The first staggering steps in the silicone world.
So much fun! I can't think what it would be like to be forced back to only having foam latex again.
Personal favorite of the year must have been the no budget, two day notice upside down faces for a music video.
I wish I could redo them better but am still proud of the concept.
This are the gelatine pieces I used on Peter Loguin for Don Giovanni on the GothenburgOpera. The pieces were only coloured with flocking. No pigments at all. I thought it gave them a cool depth  and the edges were easy to blend off. But they got quite stiff and didn't allow for a lot of movement.

So I decided to make a special mould where I could make it hollow in the neck area instead. This was step one where I extended the sculpt backwards. Then I made a new positive inside of the negative. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the finished mould. The way too transparent first piece ready to be applied. Why do I end up making so many boobies?? First test makeup on Carolina Sandgren.
Soooo many problems in the beginning of silicone. But so much fun! Carolina Sandgren in the opera Cinderella on the GothenburgOpera. Don't get angry about the ugly wig! She was supposed to wear a wig and it is taken off during the show. Carolina Sandgren as herself.

For the band GEMY I made some funny little upside down faces for the video for the song "Aha Love" I made them on a days notice so it's not the best work I produced but I love the concept and would love to do it again some day and spend a little bit more time on them. 2003-33 Isn't that weird but still sweet??

On the last performance we always fool around on stage. Here is my colleague Kerstin Olsén. And me. It was fun but really scary to be on stage! This was a really fun job! An advertising company wanted copies of famous art works with a twist. They let me do whatever I wanted as long as I could do all five in one day. Do you see which painting this is supposed to be? Or this one? Really rough makeups. The bald cap is not even glued down at the back but it would not show. On this girl I only did one side of her Picasso makeup.
