Taking a cue from the Buy Fifa 14 Coins philosophical idea of skin being theshell that contains our real selves, she treats our adornments --clothes, shoes, and jewellery -- as the second skin we use toimprove our identity. Replacing that outer layer with somethingso obviously different to normal ideas of beauty (which in thiscase means blemished and imperfect skin) ends up creating achallengeable situation, [and a] conflicting dialogue with theaudience. Basically, it forces you to stare like you would at areal piece of human flesh dangling from someone's neck in the shapeof a tie, and in the process makes a pretty bold statement aboutthe way you choose to present yourself to the world.

As a way of getting attention, it's pretty effective. Lady Gagawore a dress made of meat to the 2010 MTV Awards, which is kind ofalong the same lines, and the Beatles clearly thought posingwith dolls' heads and slabs of meat would make a memorable albumcover in 1966. Lots of people wear leather, too.

So, if you're the kind of person who likes to make an entrance,consider wearing fake flaps of skin.
