Spontaneous shapes drawn on the sand during a late summer afternoon in Sweden. Chaotic abstractions evoking feminine and natural shapes in a personal investigation and chance ritual dance.

Filmed by Hedda Modig during Summer 16.

A sound journey made of a collection of 'moments' recorded in 2014 while I lived for two months in a small family run ashram near Haridwar in India, Santosh Puri Ashram. The recorngs are intertwined with my own voice recounting the emotional experience of loosing the teacher, Mataji, which suddenly passed away. 'Loosing the Clothes' is an Indian way of describing death by which the soul looses its earthly clothes, rather than an ending, a transformation.

Special thanks to everyone I met at Santosh Puri Ashram.
