David Cata is known for using his body as a canvas for his art. In the Spanish artist’s most recent work, he uses the palm of his hand for planting.

From designboom:

catá’s latest work again involves the palms of his hands and the physical alteration of its properties to achieve a photographic result. ‘raices aladas’ (translated as ‘winged roots’) comprises a collection of images which document the process and finality of the addition of plant life into the artist’s skin. a superficial pocket has been peeled away from the epidermis, soil inserted, and vegetation tucked within, transforming the human hand into a source of life for the natural growth. the project draws reference from a poem written by juan andrés zúñiga entitled ‘raices y alas’, which forms a metaphor between the shedding of the skin and the organic process of a seed becoming a plant.
