This performance reverses the typical power structures engaged in by humans and cows. Rather than the human consuming from the body of the cow, my bovine collaborator consumes from an appendage on my body. I am on my knees in a blue costume that features a large cone around my most vulnerable corporeal parts, the neck and the head. The dark blue color is a play on cow’s dichromatic vision and the cone is filled with treats. The relationship between birth, death, and consumption is one perpetually unfinished.
