Grow, Bloom, Wilt, Die

This was a project we worked on with our Illustrator Gina Kiel for an Affectors multi-sensory event based on the theme of the five senses.

Gina wanted to explore the body as a living, breathing, and moving canvas. Using body paint she decorated Aleisha with a floral skeletal design to represent the life force: we grow, we bloom, we wilt, and we die. Then using Adobe Photoshop Gina added illustration to the photo allowing the flowers to grow and explore the world through the body's own senses. Blurring the lines between the human body and the natural world with photography, digital art and body paint.
