Chuan's opera / smoke mask

Chuan's opera
Chuan's opera

Usually,smoke masks provided at places like hotels and offices do not have signs striking the eye. However, this piece is aimed at adding an artistical function to the ordinary smoke mask by mixing materials from chinese opera. That is to say, with a look of facial makeup in chinese opera, the fire mask can be a piece of art as well as a life saving sign when a fire breaks out. At the same time, by using different images form opera of Chuan, the mask will change its color to indicate the amount of carbon monoxide the user has inhaled, which will help doctors estimate the degree of intoxication of the survivor.
