Menstrual Art: Menses Series, 2013-14

Menses is a series of expressionistic menstrual art films

Me on the set of Menses One, 2013


My intention with this series of short videos was to create menstrual art that captured my physical, mental and emotional experience as it happened; a monthly raw expression of my menstruation in real time.

I still really like the idea of creating one of these videos every month but the reality was that the concept felt contrived as soon as I start to force myself, so I decided to keep the expression but only create the videos when it felt right.

This series is ongoing, and has fed into my work on Flaps Theatre, a series of short performances and micro-short films.
