This piece was made for #SVAES (Shortest Video Art Ever Sold), a special exhibition for the Moving Image Art Fair NYC 2013, curated by Marina Galperina and Kyle Chayka. It was made using the Vine app - which explains its 6 second length and square format - a requirement of all of the videos in #SVAES.

For me it was interesting to incorporate a longer form video (the balloon breasts at the sitter's breast height) into an otherwise very restrictive time limit. I am also interested in the fact that Vine has been so flooded with homemade porn-related video-imagery, so this piece was a satirical reaction to the homemade Vine-porn so prevalent.

Ultimately the only edition of this work was sold to the collector Myriam Van Esch, who released it on Vine for the public. There are several articles about this phenomenon. It has been a very strange experience.
