this series explores the tangible balance between repulsive and attractive, exposing various growths beyond the bounds of the body. each piece acts as an extension of our inner self, bared to the foreign outside.
skin, being the barrier between our inner and outer self, is often portrayed as a vessel, an embodiment of our identity. our skin is distinctively our own; personal, it reveals yet conceals oneself.
being inspired by the body has also informed my investigation towards material properties and processes. a layer of skin is initially developed through casting and multiplying forms, ready to manipulate. Introducing wire stitching, electroforming, and flocking to the forms not only illustrates different conditions of growths but also creates juxtaposed tactile qualities within my work.
through this series, i aim to evoke questions of what if: what if you had my identity? what would you do with it?
