Floor Skin is part record, part repository of evidence of a performative exploration, continuing the collaborative working with Roy Joseph Butler. It explored how he responded to paint on his skin as a haptic discovery medium, with his visual sense removed (blindfolded).
The end result was peeled off the floor, creating a semi-transparent paint-skin membrane, that requires viewing from both sides.
Each side of Floor Skin differs in detail and feel. It is important that something which was created using touch, feel, contact, should be “viewed” using touch as well.
