Body Blog frames the viewing of a painting in a digital format as a true and valid experience of the artwork rather than a lesser “stand-in” for the in-person experience. Paintings, printed as temporary tattoos, replicate the temporal, social, and anonymous aspects of viewing art through blogs upon the body. Just as images that are posted online remain clear and relevant for a short period of time before “deteriorating” into an archive of backlogged posts, the temporary tattoo will remain clean and clear for a few days before daily wear begins to break it down.
