All of Us explores the aesthetics of scars to highlight their visual aspects and exhibit something that is usually not on display. Apart from the visible wound, scars are also constant reminders of injuries and events.
Macro videos of scars varying in sizes and severity are taken from their hidden spots and projected in large format. Tracked by a camera system, visitors can use their hands to influence the footage shown: by placing your hand anywhere on your body, footage from that area is shown. This relationship between the feel of a physical touch and what is seen on the screen creates an intimate experience for the viewer.
All of Us is an ongoing project, anyone interested can contact email@example.com to make their scars part of the installation.
