Tari Ito, Face: Memory of the Epidermis

When life comes to an end, the epidermis which has repeated the process of the birth and death of cells everyday is released from duty. The memory of the cell re-emerges and another individual is made. I don't feel these precesses, because I live in the world of outward stimuli. But there is always the possbility of meeting in a place hitherto unimagined -- a sensation of original nostalgia. It is a smell or a wind which touches the skin. The skin is a translator of the inward impulse.
