Milk Clock, Digital video and components (6 mins 58 secs), dimensions variable, 2017.
Milk Clock was created after working on Saturate Desolate with Jessica Dupuis, as a further exploration of the physical and psychological experience of breastfeeding twins around the clock for 14 months. It is simple and direct, but clearly shows the constant and insistent nature of the act of breastfeeding on the mind and body of a mother.
When shown, the piece is projected large scale on a gallery wall. The black disappears in the light and you see only the pulsing milk, shown below.
