"Amber Doll > TILIKUM"
December 10-20, 2011
(50 Hour Performance)
See sculpture details
"Amber Doll > TILIKUM" was a 10-day, 50-hour
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
posed with him for pin-up images
Twelve pounds of silicone flesh were all that was left of Amber Dolls 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.
