Under the Mask. Drawing the Vitality of History from the Changes of COVID-19 Face Mask
A mask is an object that possesses multiple meanings. In its external physical manifestation, the mask blocks viruses and protects life; internally, it demonstrates the fragility of social civilization, economy, life, and ecology, evoking the perceptions and feelings of the world, others, and self, and attempting to limit and dictate our behavior on this planet. Denken über Design 35 argues that masks demonstrate the vulnerability of products in their current contexts, the vulnerability of the systems that make and use them, and the vulnerability of the lives that are protected and reshaped by them.
