From one skin to

another

 

Von Haut zu Haut

 

 

 

Moulting, new tissue is growing on my back and leg. Pieces of cultivated skin.

 

 

 

In my Skin Lab I zoom in on the thin surface between

myself and the outside world and decode, recreate,

stylize and plasticize the cells,structures and

drawings I find on my human suit.

 

Skinmaps & skin imprints show what I come across

on and under the boundary face. Anatomical imaging

of tactile sensations. Fantasies about intimate

parts, about peeling off, putting on another coat,

getting under alien shells or growing a thicker skin.

A piece of cultured tissue,

mapping the altered landscape left on the skin

after getting in touch with other surfaces. 

An anatomical scrap of the modified

skinscapes and tactile sensations.
