This installation, "Phrenology," illustrates an attempt to understand men through the early 20th
century method of psychology called "phrenology." The practitioners of this pseudo-science
believed a person's personality and psychological make-up could be determined by the bumps and
contours of the skull. The paper nearby each ceramic head in the installation shows a typical
phrenological diagram of the skull with portions marked as pertained to each mask's features. Then
it listed all the qualities determined by the bumps on the respective heads. It was a last-ditch attempt
to try to understand men, but it didn't work.
