Medically Prescribed Jewellery
Part 3 | Sub-Dermal and Exo-Dermal
Regarding present and future biotechnological advances that allow the praxis of an object penetrating and perforating skin and subcutaneous cellular tissue and the possibility of inserting others in a deeper level within the body, thus turning it into the manipulated surface that carries the uncanny equivalence between body and dummy and its inside represented as a crypt, by means of re-shaping one’s physicality, here are presented six levels of jewellery, organised by their visibility, in which are introduced the concepts of sub-dermal, exo-dermal, exo-corporeal and intra-corporeal jewellery.
Precious metal suture staples and suture wires/chains.
Can be seen (by the naked eye) and touched; Penetrates and perforates skin and subcutaneous cellular tissue – dermis, epidermis and hypodermis.
