Dermis Suit brings up the physical and psychological act of control and power through voyeurism. Dermis Suit is an audio and visual piece in which I have placed myself in a nylon suit that is tethered to the wall thus creating a fixed position that alludes to the other that intervenes or controls. They physical cocooning of self symbolizes the mental construction of inadequacies and limitations, and in the video I can never quite find a way out. The audio portion of the installation examines the fight that is occurring inside the suit as I struggle to break free from my own skin. The listening device for the piece is a stethoscope that creates an intimate listening experience and allows the viewer to penetrate my skin.
