Skin: The Ultimate Interface
London College of Fashion, 20 John Prince's Street, London, W1G 0BJ
'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?
