Within Skin addresses memory, trauma and the way they manifest in the body. The piece is structured like a dream with loosely related images blending into one another to form a psychological allegory. As the imagery and sound become more charged, the dream shifts into a nightmare and an atmosphere of tension, distress and anxiety take over. The nightmare eventually recedes and gives way to images of bruises, scars and scabs— marks of trauma, but also signs of healing.
