For my modular unit and repetition project I used procedural face masks to make a guinea pig. I sewed together over 50 masks with thread, used the earloops from the masks on the face and embroidered on details of the eyes, mouth, and nose. My reasoning for doing a guinea pig is because I do not support animal testing and because I simply really like guinea pigs. This guinea pig is like a plush toy, one that is very soft and comfortable to lay your head on. It represents how we see animals and products and never see what some animals have to go through for certain products to be "safe". It is also for animals that undergo other research and testing not directly involved with toxicology, cosmetic, and drug testing.
