A Book Is A Body II - Skin Affairs

Book Sculpture
Medium: Teabags and threads
240 x 280 mm

Skin Affairs is an extension of A Book Is A Body II. It is an artistic book created in relation to the first chapter which talks about the concept of how our skin wraps around the body, giving it its structure and form.

The entire book is made up of teabags, which resembles dried skin. Sheets of teabags were layered and bound on both sides to represent how skin wraps around our body. The only way to open the book is by tearing from the center. The action of tearing the pages communicates the idea of peeling and revealing what is underneath the skin.
