‘’When your second- skin becomes a language for the life underwater’’
Muskaan’s concerns have been influenced by a trip to Venice, where she experienced massive flooding and high tides. The earth is 71% water and this could be prime estate for future generations. There are many cities, which are sinking inch by inch every year because of global temperature and sea level rising. Her work links to future statistics projected for the year 2050, when there will be 'floating cities', in and out of water bodies. Her work is based on the story of Venqua who talks about her life in an underwater colony called submersible. She describes how people have adapted a new way of communication through a tactile colour change second skin, Skinsiev.
