more than words

Sometimes, a lot can be lost when you dissect a story word for word, but in this case each word is just as amazing as the entire story. That's because this story, called Skin, by experimental writer, Shelly Jackson, is being told one word at a time via tattoos on over 2,000 volunteers, whom she refers to simply as "words."

To begin telling the story, Jackson is releasing a series of videos of some of the volunteers reciting their word at Berkley Art Museum. Each word lives on a person that comes with their own story, yet when put together, they all become one, beautiful story. That is, if it were even possible to view the entire story.

Unfortunately one of the "words" passed away and will always be missing from the story, therefore essentially changing the path of the story forever. Kind of sad, definitely odd, but mostly beautiful.
