Breaking down the layers of artificial perfection. A self-portrait in motion, framed by the edges of the phone. The body and the camera are both tools to manipulate and control. Exploring the potential for transcendence in consensual, neat and organized, submission. Suspended, if only for just a second in a mixture of excitement, horror, and arousal. Subverting censorship and queering intimacy. The bait and switch.
