Locust Projects presents Honey Baby, 2013, an immersive video installation created by New York-based multidisciplinary artist Janine Antoni and renown choreographer Stephen Petronio. Inspired by motion in utero, the video captures a folding and tumbling body suspended in a honey filled environment. The fourteen-minute video brings its subject incrementally closer until a collapse of space presses the viewer up against the body. The sound of the video is interpretation of what the baby would hear in utero. Honey Baby reveals a uniquely sensual relationship between subject and host.

Honey Baby captures a slowly folding and tumbling nude male body suspended in a honey-filled womblike environment. Viscous golden honey, referencing amniotic fluid, coats the body as it moves infinitesimally slow, seemingly in transformation. The viewer is brought incrementally closer until a collapse of space presses the viewer up against the performer inviting reflection on notions about birth, the body, movement, and eroticism.
