It’s the Skin You’re Living In is a miniature multi-screen film installation which explores and challenges images of climate change, showing this year at Quarterhouse in Folkestone as part of SALT: Sea & The Environment Festival.

A dismantled polar bear costume, repeated actions, and walking, walking walking…

Shot in a series of locations from the high Arctic to a kitchen in London, the film suggests that climate change isn’t a matter of distant landscapes and threatened species, but part of our daily lives.

The It’s The Skin You’re Living In installation is free and viewable for the duration of SALT: Sea & The Environment Festival at Quarterhouse in Folkestone between 21st – 24th October. Seven mobile phones, each playing a different, synchronised version of the film will be on display at Quarterhouse. It’s a multi-screen installation, shrunk to the size of a phone.
