About this submission

I chose to create a character that could act as a blank slate – a figure intentionally left with gaps to be filled by self projections and the individual conditions of audience members. This blank slate manifests itself in Kevin's head-to-toe body suit. Masked and encapsulated in white fabric, Kevin shields the world from truly knowing him. I aimed to mimic the way in which we have increasingly learned to disengage from connection and resort to solitude - for various reasons. In an attempt to spark collaboration with the audience, I left space for a generative interpretation of these reasons.
