Invisible Light 2016 Archival pigment print on cotton paper 120 x 120 cm Edition of 5 + 2 AP
Emotional Geometry is a body of work informed by Chinese philosophy, medicine and healing. In this series of photographs and sculptures, I visualise the energy meridians of the body as a form of armour. This series incorporates crystals and plants for their healing and protective properties, and Buddhist mudras invoking ritual gestures of the body.
Based on a Chinese map of the energy meridians of the body, Invisible Light is cut from white leather and worn like a second skin. Informed by Eastern philosophies of the body, this work visualises the energy channels that transport life force or Qi throughout the body.
