45 min 31 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

Beginning with nine rectangular blocks of butter, the artist uses their hands to mould and rework the yellow material. At first resistant to the remaking, the butter eventually becomes soft, malleable and audibly moist as the artist sculpts the material.
