‘Feel’ is a photograph that I worked upon during times of questioning certain personality traits of exposition and concealment in the society.
Observing my body as a ground on which many people have a say to as an effect of the environment that I lived in. While eating an orange, my mind began observing the contours of the fruit ; alongside reading about body,voice,senses and Robert Green’s “The art of seduction”. This lead to a one on one experimentation of documenting an orange and amongst 1000 shots , this one well addressed the situation and poetics.
Meanwhile, my diary writings consisted of themes related to “longing” in relationships and its beauty in the vocabulary of the paradigm of ‘awaiting’.
Thus, the vaginal representation of the curves inside an open orange and its layers seemed to resemble a private part of my body which feels silent yet violent at the same time.
