my binta, your binta// lol—roars from the skinland


The skin is the organ that covers our body and controls our sense of touch as well as forming a barrier and interface with others. Freshly exploring how skin works from a wide range of perspectives, this project will create a new performance work. Along with presenting the performance, it will hold an archival exhibition of research and experiments, plus public lectures with invited specialist speakers. It aspires to make a sharable contact-communication performance by developing a device that recreates tactility. Asking what it means to feel pain when we hit something, the project endeavors to understand and share the information contained in the act of coming into contact.

CCBT Art Incubation Program

One of CCBT’s core programs, the Art Incubation Program provides opportunities for creative talent to undertake new projects and makes those processes accessible to the public, facilitating forms of artistic expression, exploration, and action that change our city for the better. Selected through an open call, five artist fellows will act as CCBT partners, developing their projects, making the creative process public, exhibiting the results, and holding workshops and talks.
