Janus Headed Puppet

As an artist I work primarily to transform found and recycled objects into puppets and small theatre like settings that recall ancient mythology and folktales. The Janus headed puppet takes its concept from classical mythology and was created for a stop motion film and as a device to frame shots through its open box torso. The puppet is made from many materials such as found turtle bones, an old watch case, a spoon, almond shells and butterfly wings encased in mica. Papier-mache pulp forms the dual faces and copper wire binds the varied parts into cohesive and bendable limbs.
