“When what we think of as skin - a surface layer attached to the body - is extended in three dimensions to become a space, it may reveal itself to be more complex than previously thought: more than just a border between the internal and the external.

Then it grows, overtaking the space...  becoming one with what is threatening me...

I am embracing overgrowing forces”
