Plague Doctor Mask

The mask was purchased from a supplier of Venetian masks and adapted: the sensors were installed in the end of the beak with a cable running back up to the side of the face and down underneath the cloak to the computer: the sensor unit is attached to the mask with velcro: a plastic seal was fitted into the beak to close off the end of the beak from the performer's breath (it was made from a plastic bag and some adhesive velcro): new airholes were drilled above the seal: a stronger elastic headstrap was attached to the mask.
