This is a world of bread and circuses. Grapes lust after grapes, too caught up by the fruit to see the hands above orchestrating, holding the bunches just far enough a part.

We are all grapes on a vine, distracted by what we want, unable to see the danger behind us, or the danger above.
In the 50s the common bra shape was a bullet, so people came to expect breasts to be bullet shaped. Through time bras have created a false standard form for breasts, even though the reality is that they come in all shapes and sizes.

I created the square bra, 3D printed the cups, sewed the straps, then wore it for the day.
