I used to watch through my window as my neighbor slowly ambled down the road on his afternoon walks. He suffered from terminal cancer and dreamt of returning back to his home in New York. He hated Florida, felt trapped by the hot sun. The mask and this performance was my way of acting out his dream, while simultaneously playfully exercising my own fears of the inevitable.
