Our skin is the largest interface we share with the world around us. It forms a protective layer around our bodies. The color of our skin is biologically associated with protection from sunlight. However, the physical color of our skin extends far into cultural and social contexts of society. Skin could play a role in how individuals are treated in society.


As globalisation advances, we head towards a post racial era, yet we have not fully overcome discrimination.  


Skin Tote translates the nuances around various skin colors by using bags as a metaphor.  Our skin is essentially a container and just like a bag, it contains the essence of who we are. Property remains within it, and is not contained in the color of the bag. This message is communicated via a series of photos, where the aim is to spread the aesthetic quality and diversity of skin colors.




Skin Toteは肌色の多様性を、カバンに喩えて表現しています。 「私たちの肌は本来、ただ臓器やパーソナリティを内包するカバンのようなただの容器であり、そのカバンの色にその人の価値は含まれていない。」Skin Toteはこのメッセージを一連の写真で伝え、肌の色の美しさと多様性を広めることを目的としています。
