"Amber Doll > TILIKUM"
December 10-20, 2011
Performative Sculpture
(50 Hour Performance)

See sculpture details here.

"Amber Doll > TILIKUM" was a 10-day, 50-hour livestreamed performance in which I transformed my identical, life-like sex doll into a replica of the bull orca, Tilikum, who lives in captivity at SeaWorld Orlando and has been involved in the deaths of three people.

After transforming Amber Doll into Tilikum, I branded my body with his name and posed with him for pin-up images.

Twelve pounds of silicone flesh were all that was left of Amber Doll’s original form after Tilikum was sculpted. My post-transformation solo exhibition "All That is Left of You / Everything You Are Now," included two performances: "Cleaning" and "Ribbon Tying" and displayed the 556 non-orca parts of Amber Doll.
