Skin Mapping

Without visual stimuli, physical sensations take the reins and guide the artist’s hand

She has “spent the last eight years developing a new artistic process, which she calls skin mapping.” BBC Radio 4

 

 

Mapping Armageddon

Hosted by Arts Centre Washington,

25 November 2016 to 20 January 2017

As part of the Sunderland City of Culture Bid 2021, Stephanie Smith and Barrie West, plus the help of 19 poets, collaborated in a monumental exploration of man’s inhumanity towards man and the lessons which must be learnt.

 

West constructed a four wall installation which traced global conflict from WW1 to the present day.

Smith, by contract, provided ‘The Poet’s Chair’, which was at once sculpture and pulpit, a unique performance space that demands we learn the lessons so many men and women died to teach us.
