Woman Was The Word
Woman Was The Word
A Multimedia Project curated by Absent Fever
I was asked to create a three piece video and the album art for Woman Was The Word: A Multimedia Project curated by Absent Fever. This project focuses on the under-appreciated female artists across all different mediums.

"Woman Was the Word is a project envisioned in observation of the nature in which women are present in the art world, specifically in regards to music. We found that though women are present, their presence is often unknown or unrecognized. While most fields are male dominant, this may not be entirely true in visual arts and music. Women are present, but in a community like the blog community, the presence of their talents can often go under-appreciated in the almost camouflage nature of blogging. The idea of the project was to unveil and illuminate the persistent talents of females whilst tying together all aspects of this community. We asked three remarkable female bloggers to write pieces, poetry, stories, about anything that made them feel inspired to put pen to paper. The three bloggers who participated were Holly of East to West, Katie of Heavy Percussion, and Nada of Friends With Both Arms. Those three pieces they wrote were then interpreted by three female musicians who we asked to make original songs inspired by the writing. The three musicians who participated were Elizabeth Rose(who’s song was inspired by Holly’s piece), Rachel Levy (who’s song was inspired by Katie’s piece), and Yohuna + Adelyn Rose (who’s song was inspired by Nada’s piece). All three songs were then sent to a female artist and videographer, Heather Daniels, who created one video for all three tracks. In result, we’ve received art across all mediums that pay magnificent tribute to the work of women in this world and we’d like to share it with you. You can download the three songs here and below are the three pieces written by the bloggers for the project:
Elizabeth Rose- ” Throw Me To The Stars ” (Inspired by East to West)
Rachel Levy- ” Pierced “ (Inspired by Heavy Percussion)
Yohuna & Adelyn Rose- ” All The Slow Songs (Waiting) “ (Inspired by Friends With Both Arms)"
