Who's the wierdest of them all ?

A custom-made silicone rubber face mask, made from a negative of the wearer's own face but then mirror-imaged.

The result is "your" face but flipped left to right.

Wear it when with people you know, and watch them get increasingly anxious and confused as they struggle with the subtle wrongness of your almost but not quite normal visage.

       One trick that photographers of olde employed was to, when printing a portrait for a client, flip the image left- right. When shown to the client, it is strangely familiar - they like it and order more prints. It is because they're more used to seeing their own mirror image in a mirror than the correct way round.

       Sorry, Mr. Corbyn, there's nothing we can do for you.

       Too many clues in the background that something is wrong ...

       Video conferences could be made fun by flipping the monitors images. But ban clocks, buttoned shirts, writing on any black boards, so many clues so little time. Oh and the lady with one blue eye and one brown eye.   

       Just talking heads. All of whom seem to have just visited the barber/beauty shop to switch the part to the other side.
