It’s the Skin You’re Living In: the film

  • Project: It’s the Skin You’re Living In: the film
  • Artist/Company:

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.
