Ebb ©1996

The projected image of blood-clouded water fills a miniature tub into which a woman climbs, crossing the static bounds of space and object. Slowly, one begins to notice the blood recede into her body, the water clearing. Bleeding every month is a defining female experience, yet in Ebb there is a shocking twist: she is taking back her blood. She gathers up her womanhood, disallowing the pain of menstruation and its sacrificial implications.
