Brushes, brooms, cleavers and scissors. These are just some of the everyday objects transformed into enigmatic masks by French architect and designer Thierry Despont. Despont himself describes his process for creating the Masks, "As I wander the streets of our cities I keep humbling across weird and discarded objects, old tools abandoned in the dark corners of foreign shops. The objects speak to me. I take them to my studio where I lay them down on old cutting boards found in a Parisian flea market. Suddenly a mask or a face appears."
