➖IV Winds Project ➖[link in bio] This project seeks to recognize the distance that spans between each human being on the earth, and diminish that gap by means of permanent markings on the flesh. Each piece is united in symbolic abstract imagery, and anchored in the concept of the “Four Winds” prophetic language used in ancient biblical text. The ground for this project is the belief that all human beings on earth are inherently connected, and are required to participate in a communal state of existence. The sharing of a piece which is grounded in a uniform symbol and yet unique to each person is meant to bring up a conversation of community, and a sharing of the personhood and environmental living space within which we all exist. By allowing the image to become a permanent part of one’s body, rather than an external piece, each sharer is commiting to a contribution that goes beyond themselves; they are making the commitment to remain connected with others a permanent part of their body, and thus a permanent part of who they are. ➖Each piece will be grounded in four parallel lines, to signify the unity of the Four Winds of the earth. Every addition to the ground element will be unique. No sharer will wear the same exact image as another. Each image will be applied free hand. ➖This project is not simply a distribution of individual works of art. Rather, it is an expansive composition that is meant to harmonize and create harmony within and across multiple communities. ➖If you are interesting in learning more or being a part of this project, please DM me.
