Woman Ages, Decays And Is Reborn With Makeup


Makeup, it’s one helluva drug. Artist Emma Allen shot this animated self-portrait in a little more than five days. It shows the subject go through the circle of life, from the present, to death, and then to a new incarnation. Told through face painting, the video titled Ruby starts off with a young woman who slowly ages and ultimately dies.

The body decomposes and is reduced to dust, and finally the circle of life continues with a new incarnation. We’ll say she was lucky. Re-incarnation is something like a draw of lots with the odds stacked against you. Considering the vast amount of species and their general lifestyle, re-incarnation is conceptually more frightening than Russian Roulette.
