Keep the weekly energetic potential existent within each woman at sight.

VISUAL CONCEPTIVE

This is a minimalistic set of four photographs. Each image is my representation of a woman's weekly internal cycles.

A Limited Edition print series delivered as four individual 8.5×11” prints custom printed and signed by me is available for purchase.


I dared to invite women to reconnect to themselves and their bodies - A challenge I was facing myself at the time.

I combined sound recordings, photographs, social media and downloads into an art project to convey a realization I was drawn to share:

"I believe our bodies follow moon cycles - a waning and waxing of emotions and potentiality we carry within ourselves. Like seeds."

 

The art project CONCEPTIVES is composed of four elements: ORAL conceptive, AUDIO conceptive, visual conceptive and #DAILYCONCEPTIVE.

 

Two years after it's release, this project is still pulsing. See it for yourself.


{ TAKE A LISTEN }

 

AUDIO CONCEPTIVE explores sensations and impressions  experienced during my cycles and it's recorded in my own voice (Accent included).

"I combine adjectives, nouns and verbs to create a lexicon of potentials existent in each of the four phases of a woman's cycles. It's an evocation for women to become aware of these multiple parts within themselves and integrate them into their monthly, weekly and daily routines."

For an inside perspective on this recording read my blog post - "A recorded accent"



#DAILYCONCEPTIVE

This is the interactive element of CONCEPITVES. I put out an open invitation for women to share the stages of their own cycles as a group on pinterest and twitter. During a year, which corresponds to 13 new moons, or 13 cycles in a woman's life,  I shared words and icons that reflected my internal phases. I’ve now fulfilled my commitment. But I’m not done. I am still there. (13 moons was not enought !) This dialog is ongoing.

"To choose these words and images I have to maintain a continuous inquisition of where I am in my cycle, and by sharing them I invited other women to do the same. We started a weekly process of self-discovery, no matter where we were on our cycles, and because of social media, no matter where we were in the world." Come. Join us!
