DAUGHTER OF THE EARTH   |    PERSONAL     |.   Ongoing

Our bodies are the primary vessel through which we navigate this world. Our first home. But how much do we consider it so?

Diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, I began to see my body as a record-keeper of all the experiences I have ever lived. It was telling me it needs to release the suppressed emotions and toxins poisoning it from within. It was telling me it needed to distance from the constructed world and all its unreasonable demands of productivity and toxicity in the air and food and lifestyle... and embrace vulnerability and grounding. It was telling me it is time to start journeying back... to the rhythms of the Earth. Of rising with the sun, and consorting with the soil. Of restoring the micro-forests in my gut with seeds from the Earth.


The human body has a primal connection with the Earth… with sunlight, with the texture of grass, with foods that are whole, with water and with breathing air. With human touch and community and connection. Have we forgotten these most basic and most essential of human needs? Do we not see that destroying the natural systems of the Earth is only damaging our human bodies at the cellular level, causing it to malfunction as dis-ease.


In this body of work, I explore the human body as a complex ecosystem in itself, a part of the larger ecosystem of the Earth. And how I am nurturing my body's ancient biological connection, as a daughter of the Earth.

The Body Remembers

In the cells of its soul,

How to breathe air,

And how the blood flows...

The Body Remembers,

what the mind suppressed.

The traumas of yore,

The tears unshed,

The anger clenched,

The words unspoken.

Like tree rings

That store memories of drought,

It keeps score

of toxins fed.

But, The Body also Remembers...

the song of streams in ears,

the solace of soil under feet,

the shine of sun on skin.

The Body Remembers

it is an ecosystem unto itself,

symbiotic with the Earth.

To this ... if it surrenders,

perhaps the Body will Remember,

How to survive...
