In the video SKIN I took the original material that I recorded whilst massaging
various people and projected it upon my own body. SKIN examines the elusive
nature of sensation and touch. There is communication, something crosses over,
but a lot of the experience takes place in the subjects' own inner world.
Having resisted the idea of adding music to Skin for a while I finally decided to
do so. I wanted to strengthen the rhythms and sense of flow in the images.
Since both the cello and singing bowls are brought to resonance using rubbing
motions the sounds seem to connect with the friction of skin on skin well.
I played both instruments, improvising whilst watching the video.
