To Sense My Space

This is just a quick blog update to let you know all about my idea for this semester's project. 
So, as you know, the brief is "to sense my space". I've started looking at space in terms of our skin, and how it can be viewed as a blank canvas for art work to be displayed on. I focused in on tattooing as a form of body art, and looked at how it can become an addiction, whereby the person being tattooed is not happy until every inch of their skin is filled with ink!

This led me to delve into the idea of perceptions of beauty, and how everybody has a different idea of what is beautiful. Some might consider untouched skin to be dull and boring, and instead, judge somebody's beauty not on their looks, but on the quality of the artwork produced on their skin.
