Underneath the skin another skin, 2016, audio-visual-tactile interactive installation
In her multimedia installations, Patricia J. Reis seduces her audience to have an intimate and physical interaction with advanced technology. The same counts for the installation Underneath the skin another skin. Have a seat on one of the objects, put on the headphones and close your eyes. The rhythm of this multisensory simulation is synchronized in such a way that – even with your eyes closed – moving geometrical patterns appear in colour on your retina. Underneath the skin another skin ignores our visual perception (which is often the most dominant) and emphasizes how we can form an image of the world through our other senses.
