I was asked if I had any work that I would like to contribute to an Instagram exhibition ( @termsandrestrictions ) is being put together by the lovely Hayley Reid, about how despite it being taken by you and has been posted in your name, images uploaded to social media sites like Facebook and Instagram, belong to them and the audience that they reach, is affected by their Terms and Conditions.
So I decided to look at their attitudes and rules towards nudity. If it's classed as art, or is not reported, nudity can be pretty common on social media. Breasts, if it is the full bare breast, complete with nipple, are a no no.
With this in mind, I decided to crochet these cute little knockers and wear them over my own, as they look like breasts but are so obviously fake, they are almost comical.
As for the poses and style, I wanted to emulate the sort of half arsed sexy selfie that is pretty common since the rise of cameras on every phone.
They put little to no thought into the background, often taking these almost amateur porn style snaps, in bog standard bedrooms or even in front of the bathroom mirror purely because they had a camera to hand.
