The body and our skin in particular can be adjusted, altered and modified to our own specifications. We can appear how we want to, even if this is not the way we were intended. There are many more routes of this theme for me to explore. How we can interact with the inanimate, how our body lets us. How we react against others. Pressure, force, the difference between a slow, gentle pressure which takes a long while to take effect, in comparison to a swift, abrupt movement or contact. How we can change the shape of our own bodies.
