Curate the Campus 2013: It's The Skin You're Living In

Fevered Sleep's 'It’s the Skin You’re Living In' is a multi-format film project, that explores and challenges images of climate change.

Shot in a series of locations from the islands of Svalbard in the High Arctic to a kitchen in a house in London – via the beaches and headlands of Barra and Vatersay in the Outer Hebrides, the M11 motorway, a dairy farm in Bedfordshire and the outskirts of Hackney and the Olympic Park – the project suggests that climate change isn’t a matter just concerning distant landscapes and threatened animals, but is an ever present part of everyone’s daily lives.

It’s the Skin You’re Living in is an attempt to make images of climate change that remind us of how profoundly we’re connected to both nature and culture, how we’re all undergoing change, on a journey, searching for home.  It’s language is one of broken images, repeated actions and walking, walking, walking; a strange, sad and funny meditation on being human and being animal, lost in a changing world.

It’s the Skin You’re Living In can be viewed in the FILMS section of Fevered Sleep's website.  The project is part of Cape Farewell’s Sea Change programme.
