The process of creating this series was so extremely powerful for me.
I was working with Britta Pollard, the model for the first time.
I had an extremely busy week and wanted to cancel more than anything so I could rest. However, I decided it was against the best interest of art to do so.
I had no idea how the scene was going to come together as I had not been inspired by anything I was pulling and could not figure out wardrobe at all.
I did not know anything about the details, I just knew I had to show up.
So I did.
We got to the studio and I observed as it began to unfold.
The scene began to take shape, the character began to form. Britta, the model, Lucy Sarah, my third eye, and myself merged minds within the space and then blew that mind to oblivion.
What I thought was going to be a giant fail, ended up being perfectly psychedelic and it just got better.
We shot two different scenes, one which has not yet been revealed.
I got the film back a few days later and was elated with the results.
It is truly amazing what can happen when I show up and the importance of showing up was confirmed when almost immediately after I got this roll back, Sunshine Gallery called me to be a part of a pop up show.
When I asked them what the theme was they told me it was "Space Lounge".
They had no idea but I had the perfect series to show!
The event was amazing and it was the first time my lover, Joe Martin, and myself had the opportunity to show together.
The resistance to creating space conducive to creating can sometimes be daunting but I am consistently shown within the workings of cosmic order that the energy carries.
We are but channels for the creation.
Keep on creating,cosmic travelers.
