A re-framing of cosmetic ritual and esthetic technologies derived from the magic of skincare (both proven and promised), the impossibility of purity and the fundamentally quixotic absurdity of self-care. A live snail facial activated by a custom, proprietary blend of foraged, plundered, siphoned, filtered and layered footage from commercials for high-end creams and serums. A co-creative multimedia treatment that blurs the lines between literal and symbolic to maximize an extremely unique combination of benefits.
