Fifteen meters of “toile à beurre” (literally: “butter fabric”) unrolled and carefully measured in a village-factory closely monitored by security cams. Puritan craftsmen and craftswomen perform their daily task: measuring the fabric, stretching, skimming the milk, separating the cream from the whey, making butter and custom-tailoring a dress for Pudor. In the comfort of a homely chess of drawers, the milkmaid Perrette turns water into milk. Meanwhile, the milk is dripping.
