Over Your Skin: Experimental Video by Ruslan Khasanov
“Over Your Skin” is another experimental project by visual artist Ruslan Khasanov.
“The idea to shoot macro video with skin, according to the folds of which flowing paint, came to my mind in 2014. I often work with paints and my hands are constantly stained dirty, because I do not wear latex gloves while working. One day, I just looked at my hands dirty with paint and I liked the way the colors blended, the way they filled the folds on my palm.
After 3 years, I decided to develop this idea and shoot a video in which the paint will flow not only on the hands but also on the other parts of the body, I wanted to explore how different patterns on different areas of human skin. Under the macro lens it looks like satellite images where the folds of the skin looks as a riverbed along which multicolored river flow.
Basically in the video appears fingers, palms, those places of skin where there are more deep folds. At this time, apart from the hands I applied paint on the lips and nipples too. The way the paint flowing down from the top of the nipple and spreads over the aureole reminded me of a volcanic eruption, especially this analogy is noticeable with a fluorescent orange paint.”
