Aaron Robert Moore's Smudged Flesh

Aaron Robert Moore's 2012 self-portrait visualizes a smudged, fractal version of himself. By manipulating his own image, Moore makes himself strange, wiping his face and limbs away in an act of gentle violence. This image brings to surface the undeniable vulnerability of our own flesh and the disembodiment that can sometimes occur when we decide to bare it.
