How essential is skin when it touches, strokes, feels, misses, fights, presses, shivers, remembers, expects, sweats, provokes, loves someone else's skin.

Nothing can substitute for the experience of one body on top of another. In the series "Dark Matter" the floating and blurry images - with some truth and some falsity - reflect this condition of my dreams.

Anamaria McCarthy
Lima, 2000
