I have seen my share of lingerie corsets, but I have never seen anything like these face-altering masks.
Designed by Paddy Hartley, the "Face Corset," as he calls these masks, were designed with a social message and critique in mind. The purpose behind Hartley’s work is to mimic (and exaggerate) the effects of plastic surgery on the human face. With a face corset, Hartley changes the form of the face--often with dramatic results.
Through the corsets, the artist examines perceptions of beauty and alternative means of achieving the wearer’s ideals of perfection.
