Autoerotic Meditations is an ever-expanding online artwork comprised of sound and image contributions from women co-creators. While self-pleasuring, women take a photo of themselves or record their sound. Women then ornamentalize their photo into a mandala-like image using a simple special effect with Sumopaint online software. Or women may choose to submit a sound component, whereby I edit their sound into a meditative and harmonic composition.
Autoerotic Meditations is an artwork from the Euphoric Femme series. The Euphoric Femme series of artworks are inspired by sex-positive feminism and sacred sexuality. Through a social media platform, the artworks are created in collaboration with people who identify as women and who are reinventing sexual expression. The Euphoric Femme artwork series aspires to politicize women’s sexual agency, facilitate women driven erotic celebration, and cross-pollinate art with well-being.
