Documenting skin tags.
The androgynous adolescent body has been chosen as the canvas for the different variations of Skin tags as it is a body in limbo – not child, not adult and often not a voice that is heard when it speaks – with reference to the Cassandra theory and the works pet name being lady Cassandra.
The lighting in this shoot is soft and warm – homely and comforting - reassuring and nurturing in its warm colour pallet - this is in stark contrast to the alien skin tag on the throat - a vulnerable part of the body and the housing of our voice box.

Let’s think about the cybernetic future of human mankind. We could have brain implants that could improve memory or any kind of cognitive skills. We could have implanted magnets or RFID chips in our fingers to replace passwords and keys. We could have exoskeletons boosting our strength, we could be faster, jump higher so we could augment all different kinds of human capabilities. Let’s see what kind of real-life cyborgs we know of today who might show a good example of where we should find a balance between using technologies with our body but remaining a human being.
