Ziiomi, a Black nonbinary femme, is laughing & smiling while giving a profile shot of their not quite bald head. They are wearing a teal one piece that looks like it feels soft to the touch. There's a v- neck cut in the center of the one piece and Ziiomi's hands are clasped at their belly. They have multiple facial adornments, a gold decorative septum, two double piercings in their right nostril, and a silver labret piercing. They are showing all 52 as they smile and laugh! The joy is present.
Hello, again, everyone! It certainly has been a long, long time!
I'm reviving my long-abandoned podcast Body and Soul and, in the course of doing so, reviving InfiniteBody blog as well!
I hope you'll inspired by this first new episode featuring interdisciplinary artist Ziiomi Law, US born and raised, now a resident of Panama City, Panama. I asked Ziiomi to talk about what helps them--as a person and artist--reach beyond restrictions to be all they can be.

Ziiomi is semi-silhouetted on a dark night on the beach. There is sand beneath their feet. The are holding two fans aflame with fire. They have on a sparkling bra top and some flowy black pants. Half of their head is shaved and the other half is cut into a loc bob that rests at their shoulders.
As a non-binary multi-hyphenate, they give big GLIT energy on their best day/s. When dueting with liberation Zii comes out to play as D R I P, the freest version of themmeselves who does not know a world without pleasure & hopes you never do either. Swimming in the erotic, slithering up poles, & dancing as a fireworker & flow arts aerialist brings themme joy.
Raised in the South, grown across the East Coast, & seasoned with a generous dash of international spice; Zii carries home in their pockets.
You can find them luxuriating at the intersections of both/and. They believe if it ain’t a full body YES, it’s a no!
