    SKINNED is a collection of mould-casts of abandoned buildings in Amsterdam by design studio KNOL Ontwerp. The skin-like casts are as delicate as fabric, and are embedded with the place they represent. The casting process picks up dirt and patterns, meaning the smallest details are captured in each ‘skin,’ telling the building’s history in their layers.

    Unlike the solid original, the casts are fragile and transportable. Like real skin transplantations, they can be moved to new spaces with a whole new meaning; the spatial memory they carry adapts within a new location and their character changes. The flexible and movable nature of these casts redefines the very idea of ‘place’. Rather than being fixed to a specific location, ‘place’ becomes ‘nomadic’.

      the thought comes to mind: we send art/history around the world, to be hung on our ‘buildings’ interiors, exteriors, spaces … NOW, we could send a piece of historic buildings ‘to be hung’ as ‘art’ in our spaces. this intrigues me. love it.
