Where are the folds of my boobs and squiggles and random like nostril holes and weird shit that I can do with my body? Stephanie is a multimodal artist and art model living and working in Bushwick, Brooklyn. We met when she was posing for a sexy stockings movies friend, and struck up a friendship based on our shared Jewish heritage, our love of nudity and a blunt streak of feminist thought.
It took very little coaxing to art her to discuss her favorite subject, nudity and the cathartic process of bodywork. On a blustery day in early spring, we met at Dweebs, my beloved neighborhood coffee shop, which happens to be equidistant from our apartments.

While posing for a college class, she decided to curl up with her knees to her chest and her vagina exposed. Her work — be it the way she models nude her performance pieces — is about extracting and enticing a train of thought. One such piece, performed at the variety show of works by women and gender nonconforming artists, "Am I Write Ladies," involved her lying on the floor as though she were passed out — legs art open, dress hiked up, vagina out — next to a bowl of condoms and a Do Not Enter sign.
