Uncanny art from My-Lan Hoang-Thuy

Although they're in different realms, if you saw and enjoyed the recent Sofia Vergara / Emma Watson Face Mask video for Maskon, you'll probably like this piece by artist My-Lan Hoang-Thuy who lends us his digitally printed masks of 'self' and says:
"At the age of 360-degree branding culture and self-promoted use of the Internet, our own bodies are turning into displays, beyond traditional signboards… I’m taking possession of my identity and my physical body, my ultimate display panel. I am lending it"
Rapper Yung Lean borrowed the idea for his new track and video, 'Vault', where characters dance around wearing masks of his own, Yung Lean 'self'.
