Exploring Inner Dimensions.

Method: write down five questions you would like answered. Choose one. Rip out pictures from magazines without examining why this or that image is asking to be taken. Cut or tear out the relevant part of the image and assemble on the page. Create interpretations. You may ask others what they see. Remember always – the image belongs to the one who created it. Anyone else’s interpretation is theirs, and they are entitled to it – for it speaks to them of themself. The assembler of the image chooses what meaning they attribute to their collage.

Another Inner Dimensions Collage.

Words are not usually part of this image work, however rules are made to be broken and in this case words were used a  design element around the images. I have blurred the words. I am wild about the ballsy girl with a kitten head, and the sex kitten with a little head, instinctual, dog darling, doing the thinking. Sexy, empowered in those red shoes, for what? she is holding a pack of slim fast diet drink. Sorry it got blurred. This is a fabulous discussion of women’s received roles. Made by a woman defining her own role for herself.
