Quote:
A disguise is an appearance to create the impression of being somebody or something else; for a well-known person this is also called incognito.
Example:
  • The fictional Sherlock Holmes often disguised himself as somebody else to avoid being recognized.
In a more abstract sense, 'disguise' may refer to the act of disguising the nature of a particular proposal in order to hide an unpopular motivation or effect associated with that proposal. This is a form of political spin or propaganda. See also: rationalisation and transfer within the techniques of propaganda generation.
Example:
  • Depicting an act of war as a "peace" mission.
Here we go, Nyni

westerday morning when i was in the shower I remember that bodypaint is a form of art and some of the paintings can be considered as a disguise. Maybe you can start from here and develop your work based on it.

Masks of indigenous peoples pop into my mind, particularly Africa and Brazil - the South Pacific is remarkable as well. Maybe a project on the use of masks by the ancient peoples of your country would be interesting for you and your class? Good luck with the project. It sounds like fun!
