The moment the ball was small enough to fit in to her mouth I stopped shooting, but not because her tongue started to bleed. One of the strongest compliments came from a museum Director, who said "I watch your beautiful face all afternoon." I kept my silence. His mind chose to complete the work with me. The blue room could be any background. The sound is important in the transformation of the round form of the jawbreaker into a submissive fetish.
The mouth and the jawbreaker coexist and must move in and out of each other for breathing. As the performance proceeds, the sound becomes more and more intimate. I love to watch the members of the audience and see how they move to the sound and how they respond when they realize the source.
