“Vertigo: in whom the goddess shines is a generative art piece which explores the relationship a woman has with her body, her reproduction, her fertility, her sex or the lack of it. It interrogates the dynamics a woman navigates to learn about herself. This art piece is also a double exposure as it is a personal investigation of my own highs and lows and how it can seem like I swing like an actual pendulum sometimes hence the randomness of the piece and the chosen medium: generative art, which is often very beautiful in its imprecision.”
