FALLING SKINS ON FALLING SKIES

This is a series of photographs of plaster parts of angels figures on which some microscopic images are projected. The initial sculptures are thrown from high altitudes so that they brake apart into multiple fragments used to take these pictures. The projected medical images consist of histology staining images showing microscopic samples of diseased tissues. 

 

In this way, after their metaphorical and physical fall, these celestial beings acquire a more terrestrial body by being represented in a heavy material such as plaster; being affected by gravity in a violent fall; and getting a new skin layer on which these immortal beings meet these ‘mortal dyes and stains’.
