    "You must start right from the beginning, letting your new buildings grow from the daily lives of the people who will live in them, shaping the houses to the measure of the people’s songs, weaving the pattern of a village as if on the village looms, mindful of the trees and the crops that will grow there, respectful to the skyline and humble before the seasons."

    On getting lost in a book.

    Set adrift
    A life unknown
    Connections form
    Love is sewn.

    Wayra Sumacc by Raquel Esquives.

    This project deals with menstruations in the life of a woman and its importance in the development of her identity.

    I  approach the subject from the perspective of the female strength within the sensitivity and the coexistence of women with the menstrual cycle.

     This project emerges from the observation of this phenomenon in diverse cultural groups. On the one hand, I come from an urban context, where menstruation is seen as a discomfort in the life of women, as a period of emotional imbalance and where a large variety of products are advertised to relieve its symptoms, so that it has almost become a chronicle disease.
    My investigations have leaded me to finding this same concept in many religious environments of diverse cultures, which make a natural biological cycle looks like a disease or a punishment.

    How fragile we are, between the few good moments.

    Coming and going unfinished,
    puzzled by fate,

    like the half-carved relief
    of a fallen donkey, above a church door in Finland.
