«Our tale begins, just as it should, beneath the ground deep in the wood. Among the rock amid the earth, a body stirs, aself gives birth.»

"guise" is an adult fairy tale for the 90s. Arising from the earth, a body discovers its nakedness. A suit of armour becomes a metaphor for the trappings of identity. Pixilated to produce the effect of a human marionette, accompanied by a good-natured verse. “guise” is by turns dark and humorous.
