in masced, i address the relationship my nephew, christopher, and brother, david, have with masculinity. at very different ages, they present their masculinity in similar ways: through a mask. i asked them where they feel most at home with themselves. they both chose to represent themselves through physical spaces and tangible objects, in stereotypically masculine ways. christopher’s masculinity is more tangible and expressed through objects he resonates with while david’s presence has developed more subtly through posture and body language. i use gaze and gesture to reiterate the performance of masculinity in their lives
