model of the body. Drawing is the trajectory of such a gesture leaving mark in the space and time. It is creates certain visual structure of human behavior.

For the project I am the Venus I decided to use myself as a template for the series of female figures. They are modified by an unintentional movement of my body. The possibility of endless variations demonstrates the essence of female form – my body acquires
the archetypal quality. 
The shape, size and scale I associate with paleolitic Venuses which had spiritual meaning and were carried around. For that reason I 3D print series of these figures in a scale which relates to the prehistoric sculpture.
