Yoni Listening – Acoustic Explorations of the Vagina
Yoni Listening by Zoe Martin explores the exceptional voice of the Yoni (vagina). Combining yoni drawing, meditation, deep listening techniques, art and the unique recording process from within the vagina, Zoe is helping all vaginas feel sacred again. Experiencing the female landscape from the distinct perspective of listening, Yoni Listening also helps to dismantle taboos and shame surrounding vaginas. These acoustic explorations of the vagina are designed to inspire diverse audiences inclusive of different gender, age and ethnicity to empower, educate and innovate!
"My ‘vaginal imaginations’ re-envision culture through unity, using technology and what is known about the vagina, to bring into reality what is possible; a world where vaginas are not shamed and where to express the female experience is not considered ‘other’ or taboo."
