The Body as a Space We Inhabit (2) 2022

The Body as a Space We Inhabit is a publication made in conjuction with the sculptural work. The book photographs and interviews and  8 people about their tattoo collections, relationship to their body, agency and expression. The design plays with transparency and layering.
