Breast Spray (2015)

What is the function of breast and what does it stand for?

The idea came to me when I was reading news. There was a strange robbery in Germany. A woman robbed a store with her breast milk. When the cashier opened the cash register, she suddenly opened her blouse and showed her right breast. She started squeezing her breast and shooting her breast milk into the cashier’s eyes . She then snatched the money and ran away. 

I was fascinated by this woman's behavior. Her unexpected move debunked what people think of women’s breasts. It changed the breast from a soft, sexy, motherly female body part to a dangerous weapon. When the breast is shooting out milk, it is both feeding and attacking, which are almost opposite behaviors. In the video, my boyfriend became part of the garden. He’s enjoying/accepting/enduring the milk coming out of the breast.
