A never ending video-project (started 2022/01)
I ask, most people who cross my path, if I can take a photo of their belly button: sometimes yes, sometimes not: a short intimate moment. Each belly button is completely different and in the short photo moment they share something universal about themselves.
More than navel gazing: take a look at the navel of someone else. Consider the infinite connections with their mothers, and in turn, their mothers, their children, and the children of all their daughters. Everyone, man and woman, has a different navel and has also – once – been connected.
“Itch” means “1” in Japanese (when shouted loudly and quickly). In English: your belly button sometimes itches: does the connection need some attention?
