SECOND SKIN

 

​Second Skin talks about the emotional ties and nature of extension of self through relationships with objects, assuming an investigation into the creation of these links as a process of self-construction of the self and identity, as generated from unidirectional extension of the psyche and body.

 

Second Skin pieces show these links, revealing its construction processes and showing the stages of reality where it can accommodate, being in some cases a first moment of fullness and subsequent recollection or a single state. The pieces in Second Skin can be formed in various ways, as there isn’t a unique piece, but a procedural project capable of opening more or less ambitious pieces. However all of them have common characteristics that are the identifying features of Second Skin, clearly showing their membership of the project: working with fabrics made manually in knitted wool or crocheted, which behave as containers of objects, uniting the same with that or those of which represents an extension, and the serial character of each of the pieces.


I eventually concluded that the importance of these links goes far beyond what today we can assume, involving multiple areas of thinking and being in the moment among the most important areas of scientific studies. Second Skin working with established relationships to certain objects and why they are established, I must admit after this formal research and human values that may come to influence our emotions and the fact that these values can be (and are) manipulated by humans, so much to condition us without question.
