Abstract
Skin is a very broad topic that allows discovering and exploring all the possibilities of what skin can be. Furthermore, skin is much known for its flexibility that can shape and wrap almost every object we can think of. At the beginning of my thesis research about skin, I thought I knew enough about it to start, but I discovered later on that skin is not a surface. Moreover, I directed myself into exploring more and more about skin and its characteristics. I built many models to help me understand some of the natural identity of skin and related materials. Those models became a concept for my project - a museum of skin instruments - in Alexandria, Virginia where I implied the mechanism of different skin instruments in each building. Exploration and experiments were the key to develop my design process.
