Flying Lotus directed a tribute to his friend Bumpy Bob The Bubble Boy (Bob Heslip) for theÂ Â NOWNESS channel’s Define Beauty series. Skinflick is the third episode in the series and it presents Bob’s tumor-ridden body to the audience as a way to question common ideas about beauty. Flying Lotus provided the music for the episode and said this about Heslip:
“I first met Bob Heslip when working on my feature film KUSO -Â I had him do a very small role for me and in the process of shooting I saw so much potential in him as an actor and a unique human being. He is a lovely man and I wanted to make a film that would honourÂ the beauty of his unique condition”
Skinflick can be viewed on the NOWNESS channel and Flying Lotus is still on his 3D Live Tour.
