"Milk and Melancholy by Kenneth Hayes exploresthe transition from late-conceptual to postmodern photographic art practic es through an unusual trajectory: artists' representations of milk. Across an array of full-colour illustrations, Hayes maps the complex flow of this image and its extraordinary capacity for repetition and variation, tracing in his course the influence of scientific researcher Harold Edgerton's studios. While Edgerton's photographs were primarily concerned with the theoretical aspects of ballistics, Hayes looks at how artists have contested this scientific legacy and engaged with milk as a polysemantic signifier with complex, archaic, maternal, violent, uncanny, and sexual values and associations."
