With the release of the IPEX bra by Victoria Secret where the ads rave that the bra gives “maximum nipple coverage" the Nipple Project girls see it as the eradication and androgenization of the nipple.
These guys found it ironic in an era where breast augmentation is done to gain a "more feminine look" so to reclaim natural femininity and to counter this strange invention they're asking for submissions of a hand-made, artistic interpretations, of your nipple, or of someone’s nipple you love.
Send a nipple(s) made of any material that can be woven, sewn or attached to another surface.
The goal is to create a large, community based 3-dimensional media installation incorporating knitting, crocheting, beading, sewing, gourd, metal, leather, ceramic, felting and any other 3D media you can imagine. Get your free nipple knitting pattern here.
The final piece will include all of the submissions sewn and/or stitched together to create a large hanging wall.
