The skin is our shell, our home, our border point. It indicates our ethnicity, bears the marks of our lives reflects our state of health. Identity, awareness, personality: the skin is about us. And on this fascinating topic it focused Taiwanese designers The Ting Ho with his Skins Secret Collection , which applies to the letter the notion that accessories, makeup, bags, shoes and jewelry are for us a sort of second skin.
Not the smooth and glowing skin that all would wish to have, however. On the contrary, The Ting it really focuses on imperfect skin, reproducing by printing pieces of silicone that have the appearance of uneven skin flaps, wrinkled and marked. These are then sewn together and joined to metal parts to form earrings, necklaces, brooches, glasses “blindfolded, masks to hold as one to face the mirror, and even… sanitary towels.
Inspired by the essay by William Ian Miller “The anatomy of disgust” (1998), the designers wanted to create objects fascinating and disgusting at the same time, looking for a “confrontational dialogue” with the public.
The question arises: what impact will it?
