see more of ariana page russell's work here. reveals how bones shift, muscles loosen, freckles and wrinkles form, and bruises also protects us while revealing internal emotions, offering a translucent space for adornment....i have dermatographia, a condition in which one’s immune system exhibits hypersensitivity, via skin, that releases excessive amounts of histamine, causing capillaries to dilate and welts to appear (lasting about thirty minutes) when the skin’s surface is lightly scratched. this allows me to painlessly draw patterns and words on my skin, which i then photograph....i am investigating where one surface ends and another begins, the bloom of adornment, and how shifting exteriors reveal as they conceal.
