To explain, the piece consists of three elements: the face, the hole, and the video. The viewer hears bird chirping and as they approach the piece they notice a hole in the eye of the bird located on the nipple of the bra (as can be seen in the first image). As they look into hole (as is the gentleman in the second image), they see a video (a still of which can be seen in the third image). The video is a shot of the bird nipple nuzzling a man's bellybutton.
