Mountains turn into folds, valleys become notches, craters transform into scars. Gliding over the human body, we find different climates, environments and landscapes – each inhabited by microorganisms with their own delicate ecosystems. Our skin is who we are – physically – but is also evidence of our experiences, what we have overcome and what has passed. This project presents skin as an organ, material and communicator. It explores its potentials – its extraordinary, fragile and resilient facades – as well as the connections to our personal anecdotes and journeys. With the help of topographical metaphors, the work seeks to unravel the skin’s language and its stories.
