Even though cutting is usually kept secret, the scars and their message may be shared on blogging platforms. On the platforms one can read the stories of young people that cut themselves, about their struggles in life. On the platforms photographs of cut arms, legs and other bodyparts are shared. Photographs that show bleeding arms may spread rapidly. Photographs of the deepest wounds may be shared up to a thousand times.

The artist book is part of the Huuto -exhibition. More info here.
