Ariana Page Russell has a skin condition called dermotographia, a condition where her mega-sensitive skin swells up at even the lightest contact. Rather than wallow in her condition, Russell opted to turn her condition — and her skin — into art. Russell draws complex patterns, poems and designs into her skin, creating a creepy/cool meta-statement on how women’s bodies are appropriated as objects. Check out more of Russell’s body of work (okay, pun intended) after the jump. [Empty Kingdom]
