“This piece is made out of 17,000 non-lubricated condoms.  What I did was inter-stuff them and fold them to create this tonal range,” said artist Niki Johnson

“He said promoting condoms would help increase the spread of AIDS, and I was just dumbfounded.  I couldn’t make any sense of that statement, so I figured I needed to do something,” said Johnson.

270 hours later, “Eggs Benedict” became the intervention.

Unlike your average portrait, the piece is meant to be viewed from both the front and the back.  Both sides have completely different visions.

“When you come to the back, you see the open-ended condoms themselves.  What this does is it opens up a conversation about the potential of what these objects are,” said Johnson.
