Bodycloth 2012

Can we slice the skin in the same way that we cut our cloth?

A collection of work commissioned by The Wellcome Trust which investigates the similarites between skin and cloth, the body and dress. Lessons from Limberg references the Russian Plastic Surgeon Alexander Limberg, in designing plastic surgical procedures using moving origami models. Bodycloth explores further the parallels between the language of pattern cutting and plastic surgery. This work has been developed into a cross disciplinary academic research project entitled sKINship.
