Skin, a porous membrane ...

"Skin is the surface or the boundary line of the body's limit. The skin is actually this very porous membrane so on a microscopic level you get into the questions of what's inside and what's outside. Things are going through you all the time. You really are very penetrable on the surface; you just have the illusion of a wall between your insides and your outside."

Kiki Smith, quoted in an interview April 21st, 2006
