Facing Out: Part One

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017. 

Imagine not recognising your own face. Facing Out is a two-year, exploration of living with altered appearance by portrait painter, Lucy Burscough. Meet Eleanor Crook, a world renowned anatomical sculptor. Understand the structures under the skin as you sculpt your own wax face, muscle by muscle, from the skull up. Revealing, thought-provoking and insightful, this unmissable event reminds us to always look beneath the surface.
