The Inspiration

Imagine signing a work contract that forbids you from gaining 5kg of body weight, getting pregnant to start a family or getting injured, all while the work description includes risking physical and mental trauma and dealing with high level of stress every single day. 


Imagine signing a contract that permits the employer to delay your payments for two months without any consequences, but is free to let you go for “unprofessional” behaviour at any moment. 

Imagine having maximum one full day to rest in a week (if you’re lucky) and being judged for how you use it.

Sounds dystopian, yet it's the reality many women face when they choose the life of a professional athlete. Glorious, isn't it?

The Process

For this project I chose the stippling technique as it signifies the time commitment as well as the amount of insanely repetitive and detailed work it takes to become an athlete. 

The process is straight forward, but it is also chaotic and ridiculously strenuous. Even with the amount of pain and struggle that goes into it, somehow, the final piece is beautiful, awe-inspiring and powerful. Just like all professional athletes – female, male, or other.
