What to Wear




Danielle lived publicly with a different text mask on her face per day for six months in 2004.

Text was chosen in the same way you would choose clothes to wear for the day. What is worn in daily life mostly depends on consideration of where you may go in these clothes combined with how those clothes make you feel the moment you choose them for the day. She would apply these same principals in choosing an outfit for the day to choosing a different phrase each day to wear. This phrase was mounted in A4 and replaced her face. She would wear the text mask for the rest of the day. Eyeholes were cut into the lettering. She didn't wear the masks at home, in her studio, in banks or airports.
