As the orange peel was stitched together with the aim of it being worn on the body, due to its ephemeral nature, the material contorted and changed colour over time. I created this with an interest in artwork using natural materials and in the performative element of wearing the piece for photographs. At the time I was reading about bodies that had been found preserved in bogland. I wanted to create a piece of work that expressed a feeling of both life and decay, relating to ideas about preservation and immortality inspired by these stories of the bog bodies.
