Diagnostic “Cinematic” Uses

As a cinematic experience, Masks in the Sun is meant to reveal, to diagnose certain forms of susceptability in its viewers. As an open-source, anthropologically-inspired social environment, it also has the potential to help inoculate against what it diagnoses.

Being a kind a diagnostic test as well as an artwork, the venue and audience of cinematic screenings is important to its overall function. In addition to other demographic audience profiles, those with lower levels of education and less experience with avant-garde artworks are best.
