In the limited edition "Skin metadata" Paulo Arraiano combined images of the earth's surface recorded by the satellite with images of human skin obtained with a microscope. The work is printed on a rigid three-layer acrylic support, with a semi-transparent effect similar to an X-ray.

Paulo Arraiano was born in 1977 in Cascais (Portugal), where he lives and works. His research develops on the duality that unites natural and artificial, nature and urbanity, emergence and creation. At the intersection between these two apparently opposite and excluded worlds, he managed to establish a new balance.
