In my new film I explore the explore whether vaginas look like flowers. The female sexual organ has often been likened to flowers. For example the flower paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe are often brought up in this connection. One day with nothing better to do, I thought are they actually that close in resemblance or is this mainly poetic license? I had never seen a vagina and a flower side by side to compare them.
I decided to make it a project and photographed many close-ups of flowers and the vaginas of many volunteers and made them into grids. Simple at first but transforming into complex Op-Art patterns later. Do vaginas really look like flowers? Compare and contrast.
