The Bow is rooted in the organization of bodies within the frame, driven by a desire for control over the body and social status. This theme manifests in social rituals, including sorority performances, debutante rehearsals, and sporting events, creating an oscillation between control and vulnerability and ultimately resulting in an overwhelming fragility. While conventional notions of demonic possession suggest a battle between good and evil, folkloric insights propose a more intricate origin: the depths of our own psyche.
