Aram Bartholl shows you the principles of vacuum forming of Guy Fawkes masks. The video takes you to 28C3 and other public venues where visitors customize their masks while learning the process. This dvd instructs the viewers how to make their own most popular contemporary riot mask. Aram’s machine uses a bike pump to suck out the air from the mold. Visitors of the show can make a free copy of a Guy Fawkes mask, then the mask can be cut or customized with colour pens.
