CALL for ENTRIES: Squing & Oup – Skin Ego
I have conquered my peach fur issues. If you’re a regular reader, you know I have issues with peach fur because it makes peaches look live living, furry-skinned beings. Creepy. Lesson learned: if you scrub hard enough, you CAN get the fur off. I don’t know why I can eat deep fried chicken and pork skin, but somehow I get the willies when I bite into a peach. Weird, admittedly. This next call shines a whole different light on skin. Take a look…

CALL for ENTRIES:
Squing & Oup – Skin Ego
Complete with orifice, organ and envelope, our bodies house microcosms of experience—all subject to unyielding flux, forming a shifting scape of cumulative geography and psychology. The boundary between the internal and external world is a continuous, flexible, regenerating surface, protecting and covering vulnerable machines— our skin.
Mediating everything in our lives, skin is key to biology, sensory experiences, information gathering, and psychology. Throughout millions of years, we have exposed, veiled, decorated, cleansed, healed and marred our skin to take on new roles of social metaphor. No longer presumable, but personal, skin is a tapestry speaking of our individuality, challenging us to investigate the meaning of permeable boundaries.
ELIGIBILITY: Open to all artists
MEDIA: 2- and 3-D media: painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, digital, electronic, craft, and sculpture.
DEADLINE: August 28, 2012
NOTIFICATION: By September 1, 2012
