(In)visible Blood is a series of constructed images depicting varying menstrual taboos. With the global humanitarian crisis that is period poverty, (In)visible Blood delves into the issue, exposing the period taboos that intensify the stigma that is strongly attached to menstruation. With an underlying sense of humour, the images have a reverse psychology essence to them, prevailing their lasting impact. Humour offers an alternative way of expressing injustices, arrogance or pretentions that can’t be socially expressed otherwise. Along with opening up discussions, the aim of this project is to expose the absurdity of these taboos, raising the question of, why do they exist and why is a biological regularity, that has existed since the beginning of humankind, so heavily stigmatised?
