Eterisk (#Ethereal ).
my presence is beyond myself, i am no greater than the space around me, as if i am one with the atmosphere.
there is no definition to what can be considered #space , no boundary between ourselves and what surrounds us, our connections and experiences are shared with the things we touch and the air that we walk through.
The Fall of ICARUS (...) I have been mainly moved by a concrete exegesis that has accompanied me since childhood, and that serves as a metaphorical basis established between individual freedom and balance.
The importance of moderation (“medén ágan"), meaning the balance in all aspects of life, to follow the path of personal and intellectual growth, as well as the pursuit of emotional balance, as a way to knowledge and personal and social development.
After the “gnóthi seautón” (“Know thyself”) or introspection, It’s generated the strength and confidence derived from it. The balance becomes then, an absolute necessity. The recall of paying attention to one's own path through balance ensures the constancy of results.
The freedom derived from the knowledge gives us “wings" but hey are fragile as the same freedom is, the careful use of it, is essential. Flying is the feat, the gratitude for what has been achieved places us in that memory of the constant need for balance in the existential flight. It is essential to know that near the sun, the wings melt and the fall can be fatal, and at the same time, that too low, the moisture will break the wax of the wings, likewise, leading us to the end. The balance is what will make us enjoy the flight and stay in the air, in the heights.
In the same way that the Stoics evoked the idea of "death" to value life, being aware of the risks of our actions helps us to discern the appropriate path.
The Greco-Roman mythology and the diverse cultural uses derived, from my perspective and in my experience, can provide an inspiration and understanding of the bases of the culture, the human psyche, the social fabric, its organisation and possibilities. The traditional myth can be the basis for new creations that explain or give way to past and new realities that involve us in the present. +info- https://beatrizglezsa.com/thefalloficarus/

2015 Luo Hong
In Chinese culture, it represents female chastity and the value recognition of a woman to their potential husband. Much like in Western culture, the bride and the groom would spread a white sheet on their wedding night, and when luo hóng occurs, the husband will keep the blood stained sheet to show it to relatives and guests. If a woman does not have luo hóng, they are considered as not chaste, ranging from being ridiculed to heavy punishment. Today, sexual attitudes in China are more open, and inspection of female chastity is no longer a critical ritual. Although the men do not expect or measure a woman’s worth through luo hóng, there is still a lingering fascination over virgin women. Using symbolism, exaggerated stage manifestations, and restoring a scene of people seeing luo hong on a wedding night, I recreate a moment of blood lust revolving around the phenomenon.
