Building "I Can't Believe I Ended Up Like This"

This is my self portrait piece named, "I Can't Believe I Ended Up LIke This ". I wanted to design and create a piece that captured a bit of my personality while using materials in ways I had used before. The face has two sides suggesting a two spirited struggle within but a unified and balanced whole of a person. One being a more realistic representation while the other light side is more like my typical mask design with minimalistic expression. The copper on the cheek is a characterization of my jaw line and doubles as a sort of armor I put on everyday. The glasses are one of my first pair of glasses from the year 2000 or so. Basswood, Copper Plate, Used Glasses, Wire, Screws, Rubber, Nails, and Seaweed. July 2012
