I love the sinuous, kinetic, serpentine, swirling, spiraling movements of these beings expressing fluidity.
The last one is a woman, a Goddess-like artist able to beautifully embody and transmit this sacred quality,
this feminine flow vibrating between the auditory, visual, and tactile dimensions as She unfurls through space.
The work I do is extremely visual, but I am not interested in static ‘pictures’. It is visceral, unfolding, morphing, shape-shifting, evolving, erupting, exploding visual stimuli that interest me. There is almost nothing more visually entrancing than coloured lights on moving fabric…The ‘kinetic’ comes from my dance impulse. The urge – the need – to move is what drives me as a choreographer. When you move through space, you displace air and create a wake of spiralling eddies around your body. What the fabric does is render these vortices visible to the eye. The lighting helps sculpt and colour the impression of the movement…When I move in my ‘Loïe’ costume, I often have the impression that I am rendering in 3D form the auditory vibrations pulsing through the air. Kandinsky, the Russian artist and theorist, has a beautiful theory about how colour and music create vibrations which penetrate the soul… ~ Jody Sperling, In Elements of Loïe Fuller, re-imagining her dance movements.
Joy. When I hear the word blooming, I see flowers and I’m filled with joy. They are precious gifts from Mother Earth. I invite you to call on their feminine essence and joyful medicine to inspire and support your blossoming. Because your blossoming is essential to life.

“I am rooted, but I flow.” ~ Virginia Woolf i am daughter of river, sea and wind every drop of my soul held in the waters of life i grow roots deep in the earth arms reaching high in the sky planting seeds in other hearts i flow gracefully rooted in the soil…
This is the YES that rolled out of the mouth of Molly in Ulysses (Gabler Edition) (1906) by James Joyce, the book that turned literature around with the quintessential flow of his feminine writing. This female character uttered a roaring YES in a gesture that celebrated life with gusto, without fear, without submitting to anything or anyone. This is power, to know your essence and sing it in pure affirmation. A Goddess. Out her throat and lips came a YES that shattered all the oppressive NOs into nothingness.
The Feminine Figure by Sergio Geraldes The little girl in me is dying; there is a sacred bitch awakening. It is the fierce feminine awakening my roaring voice. This is a woman no longer seeking the approval of others but offering her vision with power. Time to stop looking for your Virgin Mary in us,…
