The Skin Project is a collective of suspension practitioners and artists from around the world. Our focus is to create immersive, large scale art installations that explore body suspension as an art medium.

Merging our various skills, we collaborate together to explore the journey and experience of suspension, so that we can present it in a positive, creative light, while conveying complex conceptual messages.
