This project explores both the materiality and sensory agency of skin. By nature, skin allows us to perceive and be objects of perception. Through touch, we can understand others and they can understand us. It gives us the ability to form tactile interactions, which in turn, make us human. This work explores what it means to pull away this layer of tangibility. Here, the process of desquamation allows the human surface to become reimagined. Using the 3D process of casting, these objects sit on the threshold between the familiar and the unknown. Whilst redundant in terms of their sensory connection, they fix the lived, as artefacts made directly from the body.
