Mask Assignment

As a group, complete the mask assignment as discussed in class.  Here is a sample mask and paragraph to use as a model.

Chaos Mask

  According to William Golding in Lord of the Flies, when no rules are present, chaos takes over. This is seen in both the killing of Simon and the hunt for Ralph, when the boys become savage and are able to hunt and kill people.  When chaos takes hold, the inner beast comes out, and it allows the boys to act in ways they never would act in civilized society.  We represented chaos as a personified angry fire.  “Chaos” has flames for hair and an open mouth to show the screaming rage that is released when chaos prevails.  We gave our mask angry, almost crazy eyes to show that there is element of insanity to chaos.  Finally, the open mouth of our mask reveals a dark abyss, because chaos presents a black hole into which one might disappear.  In Golding’s vision, chaos is the first step towards true savagery.
