Best Way To Bust Out Your Inner Beast: Monsterlove

Best Way To Bust Out Your Inner Beast: Monsterlove
PHOTO BY John Leach

Big-eyed, bubble-headed polychrome heads have been shown to reveal an inner creative persona – and it's a powerful metaphorical process of transformation. This papier-mâché, purple and green brainchild of cosmetologist/art therapist/do-gooder Sara Hasslinger asks participants young and old to create and don their own monster head. By sidestepping race, gender, and let's face it, species, Hasslinger's monster heads provide participants new ways of thinking about what art can be and who can make it. And hey, when you're not wearing it, hang the monster head on the wall. Voilà! Vegan taxidermy! To that we say: Aaaaaueerghhh! (eats tree branch in approval).
