After we set up the studio, I started to pose for the camera. When I accepted this invitation to be photographed in my studio, I told myself, I don't want to look like I was caught in some sort of brooding-artist-in-her-habitat scenario. Instead I convinced myself to try a living-out-loud, not-a-model moment. I believe Jason (the photographer) realized I had a very clear direction in mind about how I wanted to be pictured, so he was kind enough to rig a remote trigger and hand it to me. So essentially this is a selfie. All the mannequins, when completed, will be used for a series titled No Sex, No City. Selections will be presented at Frieze Frame as well as the Whitney Museum.
