    The Sixth Sense

    The Sixth Sense is a mask intended to strip the wearer of their main senses and emphasize the sixth sense’s ability to thrive beyond the conventional five. As the deceptively soft yarn covered appendages hinder the wearer’s sight, hearing, and ability to breath, the wearer slowly begins to suffocate as they achieve their sixth sense out of the sheer necessity to survive. Plywood was used in the middle of the mask as a support for the long appendages that make up the mask. The plywood was cut into a thin half-inch curve to meet the requirement of using linear materials.
