Peeling

Can a bodily existence be quantified if it is always changing?

 

Documentation of a performance piece which I consider a self portrait in a qualitative and quantitative way. Using a lab, I spent several months studying my microbial self, made extensive notes creating semi-transparent transfers of my notes using glue. I wrapped these around my body, combining scientific findings with the flesh that produced them: the information that was always there but previously unseeable. Scientific research is not the same as perception, but both are invaluable for understanding ourselves.
