37°C: From the inside of a Being to the Thin Line of Life*

An observer entering the installation 37°C becomes a part of the inside of an organism. This is a warm and dark environment in which living human skin cells are displayed. The aim of the project is to confront observers with a fragile boundary between life and death, to envelop them within the presence of life. Life does not have clear demarcations. On the precarious edge, it can either slip into death or come back to life. The author’s work seeks to present the experience of such intermediary states of existence.
