Also, what did they make his face out of? It looked amazing.

God. The puppet is exquisitely done, both in material and expression. The sense of resignation, instead of expectation, highlights the sinister nature of Alzheimer's:everything will be taken away from you. The artist has it down to the pitch of the shoulders, the particular cast of the eye. It's bleak, all hope lost, but none of it remembered.

Haunting and troubling, but a good reminder to enjoy the troubles you are able to keep in mind.

Gorgeous, thanks for the post. Here's a brief film about Hayley Morris and how she works, featuring music by the great Charles Trenet and a very fetching cat as guest star.
