Have you ever looked at an Anne Geddes picture of a baby in a flowerpot or a peapod and thought, sadly, that it’s too bad you’re a fully grown adult, because you’d love to be photographed like that? You’re now in luck, sort of – but the photographer is not Anne Geddes and the only prop available in a giant bird’s nest.
Portland-based artist Debbie Baxter’s “The Nest Project” invites you to take off your clothes and climb inside a giant nest she constructs out of twigs, straw, and various other earthy materials.
“My mission is to get as many people as I can to allow a part of themselves to be held in The Nest reconnecting to The Mother and to The Mother Earth,” Baxter explained on her site. “When you take it all away we’re all the same. We all came out of a pussy,” she elaborated to the New York Post.
Most recently, Baxter was stationed at Boerum Hill’s Wyckoff-Bond Community Garden on from April 27th - April 30th, but she’s also been posted up at the Women’s March, Burning Man, and “on a cliffside in Oregon.”
It’s yet to be announced where you can catch her next, but, in the meantime, you can practice quietly curling up in the fetal position.
