I really struggled with this aspect of the brief,
What was my ritual?
What did it have to do with Endometriosis?
Was my piece a talisman?
I finally realised that ritual is anything I want it to be. I was sitting at my desk doing finishing touches and after looking around saw my ritual right in front of me. I work in, what other people would call chaos or mess,but to me it has a flow.
I work on several projects at once, jumping between them. They are not all the same discipline. I might be working on a tattoo, a painting and a piece of jewellery at the same time. All completely different styles. This can be like a cold shower to the brain. Cleansing. washes away the clutter of one project with another.
I shot a quick video while sitting at my desk. Everything in this film is of use (to me).
