Unique Work In our current times of transformation, especially physical change is based on a biomedical model. What does it mean to be your body instead of having a body? This means a shift from a utilistic model to experiencing the meaning of our bodies. The Hermaphroditus series is based on a story written by the ancient Roman writer Ovid. In this story Hermaphrodite is a young and beautiful fellow whisked away by a water goddess. The water goddess was so enchanted by this youngster that she merged with him into one being. Hermaphroditus is a creature born out of imagination: man nor woman, human nor god.
