SKINTalks was a conceptual art project, presented as part of “9/11: Arlington Remembers” commemorative event and concert. The artists distributed approximately 10,000 band-aids with hand silk-screened messages on them such as Be Creative, Honor Differences, and Face Anger. The public was asked to respond in writing to the project. Written responses were woven together to create new work.
