SKINFACE

Islam Shehab

 

Abstract

Skin, as the body’s largest organ, is the de facto interface between ourselves and our environment. Throughout history humans have used various techniques to explore the limits of skin. This thesis investigates skin manipulation with the intent of focusing on, and experimenting with, lines of cleavage, and the theoretical fault zones of skin that are used to define the areas of least flexibility. In examining the potential for these lines of cleavage, this thesis aims to explore their manipulation as a means to produce better functionality through a series of projects that address skin flexibility, protection and memory.
