Flesh presents three silicon cubes, which were made by casting a part of the artist’s body, to represent feelings of a human body, such as, its tactile sensation, temperature and pulse. The three cubes look like talking to each other through light using binary signals. When a spectator presses a cube, it starts to flash and the other ones also start to flash as if they respond to. The artwork provides experiences for spectators of touching objects feeling like a lump of flesh and of a work recognising their touch.
