Eros

 Eros is an autobiographical documentary and performance piece portraying the emotions, sensual desires, cardinal lust and primordial drives felt during the experience of when a woman’s virginity is willingly taken in a first relationship. This piece displays the sexual act with embrace, acknowledging the ridicule but self-pride of losing one’s virginity at the age of 22. Given the opportunity to visually document the physical process the artist re-enacted the experience by holding the position for 10 minutes on the light sensitive, photographic paper until her body was left imprinted on the surface of the paper. The photographic process was specifically chosen to allow time to mentally process and truthfully re-enact the significant night.
