Frozen breast milk, paper, ink.


What if we repurposed the nutrient rich and topical healing properties of breast milk to heal our emotional scars and wounds? What if we could write down emotional wounds from our mothers and fathers, intergenerational traumas or any other emotionally distressing situation we have yet to heal from, freeze it in breast milk and have the melting process translate to the permanent release of our emotional wounds over our minds, hearts and lives? Can we use the transitive property to shift physical healing and restoration to emotional healing and restoration through this life sustaining source? "Mother's Milk" is a theoretical exploration into this concept.
