I was inspired to create “iSkin” when I was on the train one day and my phone ran out of battery. I looked up to realise that every single person was on their phone. They were completely glued and mesmerised. Fascinated by the experience, I created iPhone covers resembling human skin out of chicken skin and human hair.
The sculptures play on the idea that the more reliant we become on technology we move further and further away from being human, morphing into these hybrids of human and technology. This artwork is a literal take on how our phones have become a part of us and to comment on how reliant we have become on them. The ephemeral organic sculptures will decay over time mirroring how we will eventually weather away while our creations outlive us.
