This design is inspired by micro-expression. The designer chooses Billy and Julie for two kinds of multiple personalities. The intricate elements are created by parametric adjustment of the orientations of a ladder-like geometry, based on an entangled curve with partitions. As an interface and an interpreter, this mask is created to make people examine one's own conscience.

Interview with Naai-Jung Shih on Billy Julie Mask

What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
This mask was created to make people examine one's own conscience.
Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?
It’s not being produced or used by another company. I plan to sell or lease the production rights or to produce my work by myself.
What made you design this particular type of work?
“Billy Julie” stands for micro-expression. Since human face is a very compact display system, all kinds of emotions are displayed on a single and small footage with various subtle adjustments of muscles.
What is the role of technology in this particular design?
It’s very crucial in controlling design quality and explore design possibilities.
Is your design influenced by data or analytical research in any way? What kind of research did you conduct for making this design?
I have been working on the research of micro-expression which shows up when people try to hide emotion.
What are some of the challenges you faced during the design/realization of your concept?
People usually care about if a mask fit well. Can this perception be changed? How about if the general impression is reversed to also care about what a mask looks inside and to think about the nature of wearing a mask installation. So a mask is created to make people think (before putting it on) and to examine one's own conscience, not from how people think of a person from the other side of the mask. Now a mask becomes an interpreter.
How did you decide to submit your design to an international design competition?
I think it’s time to meet people, to introduce myself, and discuss concept with people.
