Xenorama, 2016

“Transcutaneous” is a medical term that describes the passage of a substance through or by way of the skin. With its projection under the same name, the collective Xenorama captures the movement of merging: from the outside to the inside, from macro to micro level. Transkutan zooms from the infinite expansion of the universe into the molecular level. Similarities between architecture and the human body emerge. Analogous to human skin, the palace’s façade becomes a membrane that separates the inside of the building from its surroundings. The architectural structure of the castle changes, among other things, into parts of the human body, into a living organism that is made up of an infinite number of microparticles.
