Francesca Fini - SKIN/TONES

  • Braithwaite Hall Katharine Street Croydon, England, CR0 1NX United Kingdom (map)

I’m naked in front of two neon lights, giving my back to the audience, so that only the outline of my body is visible. I pass a digital microscope all over my skin, scanning the different textures (hair, lips, tongue and so forth).

The skin is a landscape that tells many different stories, showing details that look like maps of unknown planets. An infinite variety of colors, textures and shapes, patterns and imperfections - sometimes beautifully frightening - are transformed into digital information producing live generative sounds and visuals, in the synergy of the random movement of my hand.

About Francesca Fini

Francesca Fini is an interdisciplinary artist focusing on new media, experimental cinema and performance art. She lives and works in Rome.
