“I began again, after lovemaking, to experience the sense of heightened interconnectedness, which Romantic poets and Painters called ‘the Sublime.” Ah yes, another week and another book, this time ‘Vagina: A New Biography’ by Naomi Wolf, it’s not actually new, I’m just a little late to this particular party. So… yes, Wolf explains that during orgasm, she achieved the ability ‘to see ‘colours as if they were brighter‘. This was actually, until she started having a bit of trouble altogether and determined to pursue the matter, following a trip to her gynaecologist and then to New York’s finest neurologist, she was diagnosed with a mild form of spina bifida, essentially, her spinal column was compressing the branch of her pelvic nerve that ends in her vaginal canal. This was surgically corrected and before long she was back to her orgasmic best. Which is fabulous, what a relief but I was really more interested in straddling two worlds. Visualising art with increased creativity and sexuality. As I delved deeper, both these effects are well documented in scientific literature, hyper-sexuality results in an increase in creativity. Well, if Harold Brodkey’s ‘Innocence’ is anything to go by, as creative text morphs into creative imagery, yes, there’s sacramental beauty in all that we do, there’s deep joy, in fact the whole shebang is demonstrated in this weeks mobile photography and art showcase. Enjoy!
