When injured or ill, the sense of our own body’s physical existence, of which we are not normally aware, enters our consciousness. Swollen lumps, dull pain, infection, fevers, bleeding, etc particularly intense are childhood memories concerning the body. Using a collage of blown up shots of skin and subtly wavering stop-motion, the creator of this work makes us conscious of the fact that we are simply bags of flesh.
