Dominique Paul plays with the representation of the body and explores its transformation. Her interactive wearable structures raise awareness to social justice issues such as income inequality, air quality, animal population decline and others. The surrealistic scenes of her work share space with various flora and insects illustrated by Maria S. Merian, a Baroque-era naturalist documenting metamorphosis of insects. Paul boldly envisions a future where we can alter the genetic code of living organisms and a strange new hierarchy among sentient beings emerges.
