The purple, concentrated face of a puppeteer enters the frame from the bottom, both hands reaching up into two puppets, one human and one a white cloud-like shape. The leftward puppet possesses flesh-colored markings that give the otherwise inanimate object movement. In contrast, the white puppet’s flatness gives way to a peek of what lies within. Both juxtapose the conscious and subconscious performance of identity.
