Yin resurrections – conceiled by Siv D. Rognstad, 2011
During the last three months, I have tried to look at the female side of the life force, the Yin.
Yin is characterized as slow, soft, yielding, diffuse, cold, wet, and passive; and is associated with water, earth, the moon, femininity and nighttime. Behavioral traits that are considered feminine include gentleness, empathy, and sensitivity. I am learning that Yin is strong, smart and compassionate.
The need to raise my Yin, resulted in this project where I am looking at different forms of Yin, looking at different ways to raise it. Different ways to think it, feel it and dream about it.
The project is ongoing and has so far resulted in five photos apparently different from each other. To me, these photos are playing separate parts, each one of them adding to the whole. I named the project ‘Yin resurrection’.
