Skin: The Ultimate Interface

WHEN:

On 22nd April 2016 only
Paid Entry

WHERE:

London College of Fashion, 20 John Prince's Street, London, W1G 0BJ

WHAT:

'This symposium aims to challenge our thinking about the skin and its role in determining body image, by asking a range of questions never before considered in a single event.

What is the evolutionary role of skin? How does today’s environment affect it? What is the role of cosmetic science? What are the ethical issues surrounding facial transplants? What is a burn victim’s experience of survival with a replaced but imperfect skin? How can design assist reconstructive surgery?
