Monokini 2.0 needs your support!

A couple of weeks ago I was at the exhibition opening of artist duo Nutty Tarts‘s project Monokini 2.0 at the Finnish Museum of Photography. Monokini 2.0 is a social art project that re-examines popular culture’s narrow view of a woman’s ideal appearance, and as part of it 10 swimwear designs for women with only one breast where designed.

Forward a couple of days and the project has gotten worldwide visibility! Buzzfeed, Huffington Post and even Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation have highlighted the project.

Now they need your help! The next stage is to start production on three of the suits. The ladies have a Kickstarter project. I contributed today. Will you join me?
