Other People's Skins

Published on: 6 April, 2008

The art installation titled ‘In Other People’s Skins’ is the brain child of Terry Flaxton an AHRC Creative Research Fellow. ‘In Other People's Skins’ is inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci's The Last Supper. It consists of a large table covered in a white cloth and surrounded by chairs. Projected from above onto the white surface will be life size moving images of hands and arms of 12 people as they take food, break the bread, drink the wine. Visitors to the installation will be free to sit down at one of the 12 chairs and interact with the virtual guests - and to inhabit ‘Other People's Skins’.
