Über Ariana Page Russell Hautkunst hatte ich schonmal vor ein paar Jahren gebloggt, die Dame hat eine Hautkrankheit, die ihre Haut bei geringen Irritationen anschwillen lässt, was sie dazu benutzt, um auf sich selbst rumzumalen. Ihr Fotostrecke Skin One und Two gingen vor Jahren schonmal durchs komplette Internetz, mittlerweile hat sie aber noch ein paar neuere Arbeiten am Start.

My skin is very sensitive and I blush easily. I have dermatographia, a condition in which one’s immune system releases excessive amounts of histamine, causing capillaries to dilate and welts to appear (lasting about thirty minutes) when the hypersensitive skin’s surface is lightly scratched. This allows me to painlessly draw on my skin with just enough time to photograph the results. Even though I can direct this ephemeral response by drawing on it, the reaction is involuntary, much like the uncontrollable nature of a blush.

I also make wallpaper and collage with photographs of my skin cut into decorative designs, then attached to the wall or onto board. Sometimes I use these collages to decorate my skin by scanning the patterns and turning them into temporary tattoos. Then I place the tattoos back on my body as an additional layer for the fashion of skin. The tattoos are red and pink shades of sensitivity so I can adorn myself with a longer lasting, intentional welt or blush. Rather than being frustrated by my skin’s transparency, I claim it by dressing up in the crimson hues that reveal my vulnerability. Some of the tattoos also go on the wall or window after they’ve made contact with my body, leaving traces of cells and hair, and holding a record of skin’s map.
