An object/installation performance piece, witnessing, investigating, and abstracting the degenerative nature of the patriarchy in the international, socio-political platform. Using plastic sheeting as the material of the world, as well as a ritualized performance structure, it problematizes the role of the spectator as an oppressive contributor by highlighting the spectator's role as compliant to atrocity.
Ocean of Milk: derived from the Hindu myth of the Samudra Manthan, or the churning of the Ocean of Milk for the amrit; the nectar of immortality.
