Floortje Fluitsma papercut bodyparts poem

Then feel

your skin what a thing

it is how close it sits to

your bones barely holding

inside inside

Design studio Floortje/Fluitsma created this piece for Greytones, a graphic design exhibition and part of the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, back in 2006.  The duo cut anatomical structures out of paper and overlaid them on photographs of the human body, “showing the both beautiful and appalling world that lies beneath our skin.”  Since 2006, the design duo have separated and created their own shops floortje bouwkamp and nine fluitsma.

The poem is by Cralan.

I love words + design + anatomy.
