Bureau of Visual Records


    I can see the reason why citizens in The Village would go about carrying open umbrellas, the danger of intermittent showers, and where there were no intermittent showers and the sun was shining, they also act as parasols protecting from the sun’s rays. But why citizens are forced to go about wearing tinted face masks that look like welding masks, I don’t know. Not unless once more the tinted visor is protection from ultra violet rays. Is The Village really located in such a hot climate? What other possible reason could there be for the wearing of such tinted visors? But perhaps there is no reason except for visual effect.

Be seeing you

  1. The visual effect would seem to be enough reason wouldn't it in a series known for "identical twins", bubble gum guardians and full of strange things going on. But it may have also a very practical reason being to protect them from the fierce wind sometimes coming in from the sea thus raising dust and sand. I know we never get to see such things. Or else, they're undercover agents dressed in civilian clothes but ready to intervene once the danger of revolt is imminemt. Could be, could be not.

    1. Good day to you Arno,
      I trust your "sparetime" leave has got off to a good start, enjoy.
      An intersting comment, containing ideas I had not considered about those masks. They are also worn by senior citizens who are pushed about in wheelchairs. It seems further added protection!

      Best regards

  2. That's quite right, David. It would add to the assumption of a pure visual effect. Yet, there may not be a very "practicle" side about them but there's an aspect of aloofness isn't it, no matter who's wearing them. Keeping the opposite at distance. By order. - BCNU!

    1. That's quite right. There is, another practicle side would be for self-protection!
