Para-Site

Kaisu Koski

‘Para-site’ is an installation on two sides of a wall, it approaches the white lab coat as if it were the doctor’s skin. On one side of the wall, the coat is seen from a distance, it continuously changes its shape, becoming a creature in its own right. On the other side of the wall, there is a small lens and a set of headphones, through which one can witness an endoscopy-like journey underneath the doctor’s ‘skin’.
