The series of Skin Fossils works contains images of scars and marks that have accumulated on the artist's body over time. With the help of hinges, the fossils get attached to the wall, resembling doors or book pages. Passing by the fossils, the viewer can basically „read“ or „flip“ through these pages full of skin traces. These traces are immortalized in a resin fossil form and can be seen as an archive f the physical transformation process of the artist’s body.

Die  Serie der Skin Fossils enthält Bilder von Narben und Flecken, die sich im Laufe der Zeit am Körper der Künstlerin angesammelt haben. Verewigt in Harzform, sind die Hautspuren anhand von Scharnieren an der Wand befestigt, sodass der Eindruck von Türen oder Buchseiten entsteht. Die Spuren dokumentieren einen Wandel und können als ein Archiv des physischen Transformationsprozesses des Körpers der Künstlerin gelesen werden.
