The Elomi Portrait Project

The-Elomi-Portrait-Project-Meet-The-Artists

 

 

The Elomi Portrait Project integrates art, fashion, and data analysis to celebrate the substance, smarts and stories of fuller figured women, pairing influential female artists with pioneers in body positivity. Elomi partnered with five influential female artists - Zoe Buckman, Sam Cannon, Suma Jane Dark, Jordan Sondler, Camila Rosa to create one-of-a-kind portraits that give viewers deeper insight into women’s unique stories and perspectives. Featured in the portraits are five pioneers in the body positivity space: Nicolette Mason, Chastity Valentine, Essie Golden, Chanté Burkett, Kristine Thompson. IBM Watson was used to collect and analyze influencer online data including blog posts, news articles and interviews, analyzing text and spoken data to create an understanding of each woman’s prominent personality traits, intrinsic motivators, key values, and most commonly-expressed emotions. Each artist was then presented with a personal narrative about their assigned woman which integrated IBM Watson data analysis with high-touch human analysis to provide a more comprehensive view of the woman used to inspire their featured artwork.

Zoe Buckman’s mixed media installation incorporates water and light to portray Essie Golden, a body positivity advocate. The sculpture, glowing with neon light is the same height as Essie, shaped like an hourglass representing a warm inviting shape with an essence of Essie’s extroverted personality. The presence of water is a nod to the social event-turned-movement Essie is known for, the Golden Confidence Pool Party.

Blossoming flowers first introduce artist Sam Cannon’s vision of digital influencer Chastity Valentine. Their movement portrays change—a common theme in go-getter Chastity’s life. Amid ongoing change, flowers remain visually beautiful, parallel to Chastity’s confidence under the pressures of being in the public eye. The following frames are a sequence of rippling silk sheets and kaleidoscopic flowers, signifying the idea of visual splendor and vulnerability coexisting in a single being.

Artists Camila Rosa teams warm tones and bright pinks to depict fashion blogger Kristine Thompson’s positive demeanour and evolution of transformation in her life. Kristine once transformed her perception of self from negative to positive, which Camilla equated to the cycle of rebirth, representing this through a border of flowers, full of life but also symbolising self-love and self-worth which she exudes, inspiring other to follow suit.
