A project titled, “Everything She Says Means Everything” took place yesterday evening in anticipation of the Republican National Convention today.
In an interview with Elle Magazine, the participants said that they wanted to show off their bodies and combat the “hateful, inflammatory things” said by Donald Trump throughout his campaign.
The protest was coordinated by an artist and photographer, Spencer Tunik.
On his website, the project is introduced as such:
The photograph involved 100 nude women holding large mirror discs, reflecting the knowledge and wisdom of progressive women and the concept of “Mother Nature” into and onto the convention center, cityscape and horizon of Cleveland. The philosophy of the artwork relates to the idea of the sacred feminine. By holding mirrors, we hope to suggest that women are a reflection and embodiment of nature, the sun, the sky and the land. We want to express the belief that we will rely upon the strength, intuition and wisdom of progressive and enlightened women to find our place in nature and to regain the balance within it. The mirrors communicate that we are a reflection of ourselves, each other, and of, the world that surrounds us. The woman becomes the future and the future becomes the woman.
And here are the photos…
