Orca (2014) Digital Video

"This video shows an orca in a constant, oscillating spin that highlights the animal as an object. Furthermore, the orca is trapped out of water where its performativity contradicts the location where its custodial [totemic] space is effective, the sea. The video is displayed with an orca skull, which asks viewers to consider their curiosity with oddities as real objects collide with our virtualized assumptions."
