Unembodiement Body Extensions is a subproject of Creating Unexistence. This project is entirely based on the idea of care and originated from a proces in which I tried to define my needs and use them as the starting ground of my creative proces.
After being raped I found myself in an extreme state of disconnection from my own body. Once again someone took the agency over my body away from me. More then ever I wanted to enter Unexistence, step away from this violent society that isn’t safe for me. At that moment, the idea of working on the reconnection between me and my body felt impossible, so instead I decided to make extensions that allowed me to leave my human body behind me.
The Unembodiment Body Extensions are based on three core aspects. Firstly, they needed to provide an escape possibility from my human body. Secondly, I needed them to be filled with textures since tactile stimulation is what brings me most comfort. Thirdly, they needed to somehow connect me to my sexuality, since I felt like I lost my body I was determined to not loose my sexuality as well in my proces of transforming/healing/surviving.
These extensions are a beginning of more that is still unknown.
