Introducing “Death Kites” Project By Mike Ski.
Death Kites: A modern form of snake oil which enables an individual to capture and remediate a personal fear, ailment, or positive goal through a representative image in a bloodletting ritual. As a human-printmaking experience, an inkless tattoo allows one to apply an image to the body and ascribe it to paper in their own blood. While the mark is temporary, the physical and emotional experience of the process empowers the individual in a ceremony of ownership over their hopes and/or fears.
Coming in 2012.
