Communicating with the forces I

Asmat costume, zippers, photographs


I am interested in the strength of animism: a deity who inhabits, maintains trees, etc., and is responsible for what happens. Humans act in belief and faith, surviving the world religions creating a way of communicating with the forces that is still relevant even in secular societies and imbedded in current religious practices. Animals survive without religion. In Communicating with the Forces I and II a dress is an encounter between body and the environment.
