Green Skin / Affective Interstice is an interrogation on the on-going projection of the self on the environment and vice-versa. Highlighting skin, plant tissues or wall textures as active interaction surfaces, the project argues that relationships in the built environment are established through external layers. The various spatial elements cited - arcades, engraved concrete, green lights - symbolise the built environment.
The skin becomes the membrane on which narratives are collected and engraved.
The vegetal textures - moss, bark, seeds, fibres - are an attempts to zoom in on the natural world and establish a connection between the micro and macro level. The self is re-centralised as the filter through which surroundings are appropriated. Just as a green screen, the body receives and hosts content, like a terminal, an affective surface that connects external stimuli to personal space
