The artwork combines mixed reality, 3D printing, sound, photography and film, to lead the audience through the journey of organotypic artificial skin cells, during their short, precious, three weeks long ‘in-vitro’ life. The piece follows the cells from operating theatre, where they are taken from donors via tummy tucks, breast surgery, etc, to the eczema genetic research lab, where they are processed and maintained outside of the body, genes are switched on and off, and finally to disposal.
