LIVING VIRAL TATTOOS

Living Viral Tattoos is a series of ‘in vitro’ sculptural prototypes that feature the creation of visible bruises on human and animal skin. The rendering of the tattoos was made with biological viruses and immunohistochemical staining processes. The project is a modular component of Moist Media Archives, a three year project that explores viral contagion as a form of memory and documentation in digital and biological bodies.
