Faces was the first anamorphic sculpture by Thomas Medicus. The work was created as part of his final project at the Glass College in Kramsach and formed the basis for further anamorphic installations such as Emulsifier.

Faces is driven by the idea that our identity is subject to constant metamorphosis. This dynamic understanding of our being also brings with it a political implication: seeing cultural and social spaces as self-contained vessels is an ideological fallacy that not only pervades enthnopluralist notions but can also be found in identity politics discourses.
