I had the privilege to spend my second year on Vifärna holmen, an island in Sweden off the coast of Riksattra near Stockholm. Two years ago, I built a human sized birds nest and had a friend/rare bird pose for me as a unique species of a self liberated person. You can find that entry HERE.
I applied to the island this year to continue this project. There I spent an entire week to myself and a new rare bird that would pose in a portal I would build. I was inspired by the bowerbird and the portal he builds to attract a potential mate. This project for me was about attraction altogether, and ensuring that what I am attracting in my life is what my heart truly wants. Ich will das was mir passiert…
The experience this year was extraordinary. I never could’ve imagined a more symbiotic and fluid creative experience and I’d never shared my process before. It was cathartic to be so open with someone that fully accepted me, supported me, and knew when to leave me alone. Fire Jupiterwings is a rare individual that is low on fear, wholly convicted in himself, makes no apologies for being who and what he is, and knowing where he is in his power. I have chosen my two birds wisely, or, they have chosen me.
Please enjoy the photos from both the island, and a boat hotel in Stockholm we stayed at in transit from Berlin.
For the duration of my 5 weeks in Europe this summer, my phone was demoted to a camera and iPod. I took so many photos and wrote in my journal every day. I’d like to share that story here, only here, and this is the only place I will announce that. It’s very personal, but what’s to lose, and why should I care not to share.
Look for those published pages in the coming days/weeks….
Until then, enjoy Attraction: we enter the garden of eden together, we stay forever. Vifärna holmen, Sweden, 2019.
