Feeling Good

Class of: 2025

Major: Integrated Design BFA

Medium: Beading

Faculty: Michelle Nuham-Albright

Prompt: Create a wearable art piece.

I wanted to create a mask that featured the features of our face that are missing during covid. While wearing masks, we don’t get to see people’s facial features and expressions. This mask puts a smile on the wearer’s face, as though they are “Feeling Good” and conceals their true feelings. I used wire mesh for the base and beaded the mask by hand.
