Made-Up with Danny Volk is a performance and video series taking the form of an interview/talk show. The host, Danny Volk, interviews artists about their life and work while the artists use everyday cosmetics to paint his face into a temporary work of art. The project exists as a promotional platform with an interest in exploring power, intimacy, and the dynamics of interpersonal situations.
