In Now You See Me, Now you don’t, Vicky Hodgson's artificially aged face slowly emerges, disappears, and reappears. She chose this slow process to alleviate the shock of seeing such a deeply wrinkled face and to encourage the viewer to take time to look at the older female face. To achieve this old, wrinkled look Hodgson employed a professional make-up artist to age her face by ten to twenty years. This work emphasises the importance of older women being visible, appreciated, and accepted by society.
