Vertebrae

My first vision was to make the dolls in our bone’s colour.

Now I place them queuing and they remind us the vertebrae.

It is amazing how it was all there since the very beginning.

I took this photo in June 2014.

Battersea Arts Centre, London UK

Last Tuesday 03 June 2014 at the D&D Why is funding the Arts better for everyone I shared my insight about the full moon.

We talked about the 700 dolls and the 700 full moons. How amazing is that when I conceived the project I had lived 700 full moons and I have only discovered this fact recently. It seems that another layer of the project is revealing itself and it is inspiring me at this moment to make full moon necklaces.

Kirsty noticed that there were more women than men in the room to talk about funding the Arts. The moon is the symbol of the feminine world.

I asked the question what does it mean the number of full moons we have lived? It seems nobody had any clue about it.

Kate and Dimity came to put hearts into the dolls and we made our short meditation ritual to feel our breath and heartbeats.

Some comments

‘Loose your dreams and you loose your mind’

‘It is very therapeutic’

‘I dedicate this moment to my mother who died of heart problems a year ago’

We made 8 dolls in total.

Li came to make her own full moon necklace and we found out that she has lived 455 full moons so far.

We make the necklaces with a golden thread to remind us of the sun.

We all talked about our experiences with the full moon.

Most of them include secret places.

Some stories and comments

‘Our bathroom has a beautiful angled window up to the sky. It feels very special to be bathed in moonlight, sitting quietly in the middle of the night with the rest of the house sleeping. We are doing some work on the house and have to lose this window. I will miss my quiet secret moonlight moments very much’

‘My mum do rituals every month to honour the full moon. My brother walks to the mountains every month to a beautiful secret place and just few friends know about it. They didn’t want to tell anybody otherwise people would go there and would damage the place’

‘Art is a secret place’

Yes It Is!

Thank you everyone!

Sleep quality and the moon

The 700 dolls project is magically related with the full moon in terms of numbers as much as in terms of sleep dreams.

I am amazed that recently scientists have done experiments to find out the relationship between the full moon and our sleep quality. A July 2013 study carried out at the University of Basel in Switzerland presented evidence that a lunar rhythm can modulate our sleep structure. They say: ‘The lunar cycle seems to influence human sleep, even when one does not ‘see’ the moon and is not aware of the actual moon phase.’

The moon and the dreams and the tides and the water and the emotions… all connected!

Isn’t that great!
