“Skin has become inadequate in interfacing with reality. Technology has become the body’s new membrane of existence.”
Nam June Paik’s prophetic quote has become an unavoidable truth in modern culture. The means of experiencing personal interaction, celebrity, and nature has changed drastically since the start of the Internet age. But rather than regressing or denying this truth, we embrace our new interfaces and explore the possibilities that comes with them. Delving into areas of environment, identity, the internet, and pop culture, we celebrate our SKIN. Exploring our experiences mediated through technology, the internet, and how this affects how we perceive identity, environment, time, and memory.
