La energía de una segunda piel (The energy of a second skin), 1993

 

The energy of a second skin (1993), is my first dress, it is shaped like a life jacket, it is an electric outfit full of vital energy, ready to be used by those who do not have the strength to go on1. It looks like a “protective skin” and sheer that lets you see inside the human body, its emotions, and weaknesses. I include photography in my work: the skin as a protective shield and mirror of events, it allows me to reveal the body instead of hiding it, the black light changes the model’s skin, in such a way that hips, belly, breasts and buttocks look like a cyborg body.
