your skin what a thing
it is how close it sits to
your bones barely holding
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.
