3d Scan of the care booth, where voice contributions were made

The installation and video within it is an interpretation of the "Organ of Radical Care" project.
The Collective Uterus workshop at IDSA x Ars Electronica FOUNDING LAB, hosted by Charlotte Jarvis and Dr. Patricia Saragueta, served as a springboard for exploring the participants' approach to collective and individual of care and the future of reproduction.



The video showcased at Ars Electronica explores my interpretation of care, with the sound being a blend of contributions from the members of the founding lab. This video is an integral part of a care booth installation. In this installation, we posed the question: "How do you care?" and received a wide range of responses in various voices and languages. For me, care means observation, but it also involves alleviating the burdens and responsibilities of others. It can take on technological, human, and non-human forms.

By looking at Charlotte and Patricia's chalice and at the Bio lab's cells nurturing unit through the LIDAR scanner I thought of machinic care and how with an unbiased approach it can be equal to human care.


The cells nurturing machine, serving as mechanised support for the uterus, tends to cells that require the precise conditions of a human body: a temperature of 37 degrees Celsius and elevated CO2 levels. From my perspective, machinic care and reproduction are tantamount to the processes occurring within the human body. This contradicts their portrayal in films and popular culture, where they are often depicted as leading to the creation of detached, unempathetic humans.

Why does society perpetuate such trends? Is it to avoid investing in extended reproduction research? Is it because individuals with uteruses already perform this labour within their bodies without compensation?
