In Amber Doll > TILIKUM (2011), Hawk Swanson transformed the silicone doll made after her own likeness, Amber Doll, into a replica of the bull orca Tilikum who lived in captivity at SeaWorld and was involved in the deaths of three people. The performance exposed the interrelatedness of control and resistance, captivity and freedom by pushing and pulling at the violence of visual spectacle.
