This mixed-media textile installation refers to skin as a complex genetic and social display and on the scientific notion of the biological skin as a multi-layered organ consisting of epidermis, dermis and subcutis. Scientific representations of skin such as micrographs were first produced using powerful microscopes and then utilised as the main source of inquiry and references. Various mixed-media techniques were employed to mimic and replicate the intriguing structures and patterns revealed by the microscope.
This work also makes references to the dermis as an embodiment of identity and memory, as a mirror of the physical and mental state, and an indicator of individual social status. It is also a personal artistic interpretation of the skin and the underlying interiors of the body.
