thoughts on fertility (2013)
Since the choice to procreate independently is currently a null and void option between gay males, I have approached the topic of fertility and reproduction from a bitter state of introspective self-reflection.
This work examines idiosyncratic notions of fertility and nostalgically romanticizes the idea of pregnancy, while simultaneously expressing thoughts on artificial methods of reproduction, the choice (or lack of choice) to procreate, and the acquisition of domestic objects to complete a family unit.
