The Process of a Sneeze Face
“The Process of a Sneeze Face” addresses the unbalanced struggle between our true reality as organic matter with a desire to control our biological processes. The work exists as an abstract allegory, taking the viewer through an interactive narrative using the “sneeze face” as a symbol of our inability to control our own biology.
