I received the following submission in my inbox: “I feel very connected to my waist, I always center myself around it, it holds everything in and sometimes falls out. I like the way it changes and I hate it at the same time”. My waist is the center of my body and everything else forms its curves around it"
When thinking of how to image this woman's waist I was reminded of an installation by Daniel Wurtzel.
The beautiful simplicity of this piece is what struck me. I like that even though we know that the fabric has no agency and is being manipulated by the fans- it appears as though it has sentience. The forms the floating fabric creates seems to have purpose.
I therefore wanted to create this woman's flowing curves in a similar manner, through the power of a vortex.
