Why would I make a lightsculpture modeled after female genitalia; boredom, loneliness, cheekiness? Maybe because of all of that and for reverence for the power of the feminine. What gives life now gives light.
The power to procreate and pass on the human genome is indeed within the substance of ova and sperm, but it is the woman who carries the child to term, gives birth, and feeds the little human. Then for a good amount of her life, the woman goes through a monthly cycle, enduring blood loss, cramps, hormonal and temperature fluctuations, tampons, pads, checkups, screenings, tests, etc.
When men invented the false narrative that women were the "weaker" of the sexes, it was because of diminished self esteem in the face of the truth: that women were indeed stronger and more powerful than men. How is it that women's right to vote in this country, for instance, was ratified only 100 years ago? Why do women earn less? Why are laws which deal with women's reproductive concerns passed by white male judges? FGM, WTF?!!
