What's with the Bear on Facebook?

Recently,  The Fury project has been using this bear stencil as a temporary logo for all its online presence.  We're at present in talks with a designer for the project but I have to credit the tattoo artist who made this tattoo stencil. Her name is KarianaSan. Click here for a link to her profile.

But why a bear?
It is totem of  great strength, security and determination. It has feminine qualities of introspection and intuition. But Bears actually represent teaching and humility. Often misunderstood and aggressive and cantankerous, they are powerful symbols of protection and love to children with clear protective boundaries - the most dangerous animal in a forest is a mother bear with cubs.
As a totem for the anger project we hope to absorb the qualities of the bear to hold the anger emotion for , be introspective about its power and manifest it constructively and productively.  

Go to The Fury Project's Facebook and Twitter read great articles, quotes, videos and poetry on the subject of anger, posted by the team and Facebook followers.

Packing away the Transformation Tree

It was the last day of the Fury porjecy tree and before packing it down I had to hug it. It had been a taxing process but so invigorating and thought provoking, as so many people had left a imprint on the tree, sharing their stories, binding and then adding thier energy to the vines of the tree. 
Cherrelle and I ate a slap up Thai meal to celebrate. We sent Katie pictures of our food, and cyber High Fived her by text, while she choreographed  in sub zero conditions for the Russian Winter Games.  
And so The Fury Project get taste of what it feel like to be a concrete piece of visual art with film and stroy telling at a button from The Fury Transformation Jukebox.However, this is not the end of the project, nor the the final exhibiting and performance of the Tree. There is more to come. Watch this space. Zena 


Bonding 'n' Binding Sessions Continued - Evolutions

So we have been a-binding at Kings College as part of the Urban Dialogues Art installation commission we won from 3 Faiths forum. Some lovely little creations have been coming forth as we talk and connect about out experiences of anger as women.
The plan is to make an installation of an impression of a tree made from fabric and thread that houses  The Transforming Fury Jukebox loaded with 101 stories of people talking about their relationship with and perceptions of anger.  Right now, we are at the vine making stage.

What's been amazing about this work (fun) is  the confirmation that the installation is not about the tree and the vines intend to build as the finished piece; the installation IS the process, the act of making and sharing  these moments.


We've had open sessions for others to come and join us. Andrea came and did some binding while sharing a story about her disabled sister, who suffers from sickle cell  anemia being discriminated against and talked badly of at a …
