Please watch my overly dramatic video and pledge today!!!
My name is Kelli Klymenko - I'm an artist, writer,
photographer, blogger and Sedona Arts Center’s Marketing & Events
Coordinator and I am determined to create deities. This project was originally supposed to consist of ONLY celebrities. But I thought to myself, "Why stop there? Why limit yourself? Aren't we all 'celebrities' - aren't we all 'deities'?" - and so, I decided to revive the project after a few years and include everyone. Every deity, every divine person that I could think of.
And when asked, it’s not that hard to figure out which deity you can relate to. For instance, when asked what deity they would be: Ashley Judd (@AshleyJudd) says, “Athena” and Milla Jovovich (@MillaJovovich) also responded, “probably Athena cause she busted out of her dads head n can turn ppl in2 spiders!” Fairuza Balk (@fairuza) wrote, “hmmmm, Tara maybe? (Buddhist pantheon) or maybe Ishtar or Diana?” Perry Farrell wants to be “John Lennon” and Elaine Hendrix (@elaine4animals) replied, “Wonder Woman! (or Tara)”
''Kelli Klymenko's God's & Goddesses'' is a unique project that
shares with humanity, a unified voice - a vision through an elaborate
photography and film collection. In today's society, it is visual stimuli that
defines who we are, and carves out a path to our future actions. We have deified
celebrities, friends, people who are 'inaccessible' and those who entertain us.
Those who we have placed on a pedestal for either good or bad, as negative, or
positive role models - are the gods and goddesses of modern times.
Humanity knows over 3000 supernatural beings or deities. Many of us recognize that these gods, these goddesses have been our own creations - our own fabrications that were used to give reason and truth to our misconceptions of the Universe we call home. Join all the gods and goddesses of myth and legend, of religion and fantasy and create one great story - a snapshot in time, this time - right now. Understanding is more powerful than believing.
We are all works in progress. Even the
slightest action will create ripples, then waves through time. My intentions
are to share one simple thing:
Unity : Unity in Life, Conservation, Preservation and Humanity.
WHAT WE NEED
''Kelli Klymenko's God's & Goddesses'' (THIS PROJECT) needs your help to 'get the ball rolling' - I need the funds for props, wardrobe, location, lighting, etc. The more funding I get, the more deities I will be able to create! I intend to create posters, postcards, mini god and goddess cards and a printed book. ALL my previous creative projects, including the Nemesis Showing and Gallery Collectives were 100% fully funded by me. This time I need your help to make this dream a reality!
Grow | Learn | Conserve | Preserve |
Question | Denounce | Educate | Change | Free your mind | EVOLVE
We all have the ability to make a difference in this world. I intend to take the faces we most recognize and represent them in images that have transformed societies over the millennia – and by doing so, deify ourselves through these images. Every human face has a deity that can represent them, and every deity is simply a reflection of our human selves.
We are all divine.
Which God are you? Which Goddess are you?
Deify yourself. By seeing the divine in
you, it is easier for each of us to see the divine within.
We live in one of the most influential times in all history - I ask you to join the beginning of the revolution - and be a part of just one of the millions of changes we will all make together.
Thank you for your support!
