At some point in 2010, I asked Professor Steven Connor (Birkbeck College, London; London Consortium; Cambridge) to reflect upon the different orders of magnitudes on which we experience the skin: the skin close-up, and the skin from far away. This is the beginning of a meditation on skin and identity: the skin itself, it seems, has very little to do with identity. That is the realm of the composition of matter; the way it hangs from structures.

This film was initially produced for London Consortium Television.
