The Monster in Me. The Monster is Me.
It’s the grotesque monster inside my head, ghosts of those who’ve hurt me, and the monster that attacks anyone else who tries. The grotesque body is always choosing to say something. It is not complacent with the world it is in, and so it blends and opens itself to its surrounds to force us to look at it. Blurring the worlds between animal and human, I wanted my swatch to be seen as a “second skin” as, the base layer is solely made up of my dirty face wipes, enforcing the idea that my actual body has been opened to the outside world and become one with its surroundings.
