Siri Berg: Kabbalah

Siri Berg's work has been acquired by The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, NYC; The Jewish Museum, NYC; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; and many private, corporate, and university collections. Siri Berg taught Color Theory at the New School for over 25 years, and at age 94, still works in her studio.

From the Series "Touching time"


There is a black sandy beach on the southern shore of Iceland where the sea surf plays with bergy bits, crystalline chunks of icebergs. The icebergs calf off the melting glacier way up the valley where its leading edge towers above a turquoise lagoon crowded with white and blue ice. At first, the bergs float here and there as if undecided what to do next, then break into smaller chunks and float down the river into the cold surf of the North Atlantic. If the tide is going out, they soon bob away and disappear behind the waves. But if it is coming in, the sea tosses them back on the beach where they catch the white daylight in their icy mirrors and slowly melt. These water molecules, which may be older than the earth and the sun, came a long way and will continue to travel into infinity.  But you can touch them here and now, while they rest for a while. Unframed. 20"x 13".

Diastasis Rehab Women's Package by Julie Tupler, RN

Diastasis Recti, a condition often ignored by the medical community, is a problem that screams for more attention, and that is why Everybelly® should be checked for a diastasis recti.  Everybelly®  means all women (baby or no baby), men and children. Many people have a diastasis recti and just don't know it!
A diastasis recti is a separation of your outer most abdominal muscles. The job of these muscles (called rectus abdominis), is to support your back and your organs... but separated muscles cannot do their job of supporting your back and organs. To achieve a strong core, your muscles must be close together.
The cause of diastasis is from continuous stretching of, and intra-abdominal force and pressure on, this connective tissue that joins your outer most abdominal muscles. Right smack in the middle of this connective tissue is your belly button which is a weak spot. That is why when the connective tissue stretches sideways, your belly button will become an "outie." Pregnancy and diong crunches are examples of intra-abdominal "force" on the connective tissue. Wearing a front loading baby carrier or being in a hands and knees position are examples of "pressure" on the connective tissue.
A diastasis can be closed on anyone at any time. It does not matter when you had your baby or even if you have had a baby at all! Closing a diastasis is all about healing the connective tissue, which is all about putting it in a better (narrow) position, bringing blood flow to it and protecting it when doing any type of activities so it is not being stretched nor does it have any intra-abdominal force or pressure on it. Surgery should be your very last resort!
