ABOUT BioWhite:
Shot at the Salk Institute in California, where biological-scientific research is conducted. The video’s focus is on the research Salk has conducted on skin-whitening cream products and connect this to architect Louis Kahn’s obsession with concrete’s raw surface as an essential “truth”. The video compares this discourse on concrete with the desire for lighter skin – in both cases, the surfaces allegedly reflect an ‘authentic’ inner self.
