dc.descriptionMFA Thesis Statement: This thesis project implements age-progressive sculpting processes covering not only the muscle anatomy beneath the face surface but also the bone anatomy respective to bone growth and aging beneath the muscle, in order to more comprehensively and consistently illustrate my conceptual narrative, the life- long story of two sisters' varied reactions to their unusual birthmarks. The age-progressive sculpting process originated by this thesis has increased my ability to keep the appearances of a single sculpted individual recognizable over multiple sculptures that reflect the passage of time.en_US
dc.description.abstractThe thesis project, “Good Will, Ill Will,” builds multiple sets of sculptures telling the story of two sisters and their unusual birthmarks. To narrate their progressing sentiments and appearances from childhood to teenage to adulthood to old age, these sculptures are group-displayed to present their intertwined facial features in three aspects: emotive expressions, age-appropriate appearances, and personal traits. Every sculpture is recognizable as the corresponding sister and distinguishable from the other sister. My existing sculpting process is enhanced to build two face molds designed to replicate facial foundations for added guidance in the sculpting process. A skull mold with suture markups tailorable to reflect bone growth anatomy is used to guide sculpting narrations with age-progression. A realistic mold is used to minimize involuntary alterations when sculpting. This enhanced process integrating facial bone anatomy and muscle anatomy aims to protect facial recognition across group-displayed sculptures.en_US
