Transphemeral manifests in the use of two poles to personify the flux and flow of transaction between beings. It uses visceral elements and capitalizes on psychosomatic reactions to deeply instinctual aversions to simultaneously create an attraction and repulsion within the viewer. Transphemeral explores themes of exchange while blurring the lines between sexuality and sacrosanct. Elements of the symmetrical transactions are explicitly sexual in nature, appearance and cultural significance. Similarly, the same elements have been used across time and religious practice in ritual, worship and baptismal purifications. By enabling these connections that are inherently conflicting in a visceral amalgam, the piece creates in the viewer a deeply unsettling feeling of attraction and repulsion while attempting to find balance between the transactions of flux and flow.
