Week 11 Mar. 14 | Prosthesis' Prosthesis Artist Statement
The process of applying makeup has been around since the beginning of time. Makeup brushes have been invented in order to aid in the practice of applying makeup to our faces and bodies. Before these tools were invented, our fingers were the main tools people used; whether it was to paint their bodies or paint on a cave wall. Using the 3D printers provided in Marston Science Library and 3D modeling software, I intended to create a base for my makeup brushes to lay on whenever I applied makeup to myself. I decided to use fingers as this base because when I first started using makeup products, these were the only tools I had. Now, my prosthesis is my makeup brush collection. The final product are two life-size fingers attached to the side, roughly 4" in length by 2" in width.
