The second issue of SOILED, Skinscrapers, is now available! Order a printed copy from Lulu or download the free electronic version as a PDF [lower resolution].

Skinscrapers probes how our bodies interact with the spaces around them and how the spaces we inhabit can become extensions of our bodies. By focusing on the surface of the skin as a natural mediator, Skinscrapers navigates a continuum of scale, starting inside the gut, proceeding to the contours of the body, and culminating in the anthropomorphic city.
