MY BBY 8L3W is a video work about young women who present their pets in front of the camera. The parallel sequences, shown at second intervals, form a visual progression: cats, small dogs, big dogs, their names, breeds, the participants speak to them: »Are you camera shy?« They all use the same phrases, imply the animals are as sweet as a baby, cuddle them as if they were a partner. The climax is reached when the women and their animals can be seen on 30 screens at the same time.
