Skinned by Knol
Dutch design studio Knol have created the project Skinned, a growing collection of fragile mold-casts from memorable parts of buildings and other ‘solid’ spaces, which have been copied into foldable skins. These thin fragments of spatial memory show specific details of the structure or material of the original place, but also capture dirt. Like skin transplantations they can be taken to other spaces where they get new spatial meaning. They take us to a world in which places are no longer fixed to specific locations. The skins as shown here, are casts of several places in Amsterdam; of which most of them vacant buildings.
