Sci-fi Fertility Doll

Last year I bumped into a fascinating book about Fertility Dolls. For a while, I’ve been wanting to make some but lacking materials, I dropped the idea. Later on it occurred to me that I can make them out of recycled materials but I kept postponing it. This day’s challenge finally forced me to take the first step towards this project. Although I am not completely satisfied with the product, it opened up some for some new, sci-fi, cyborg-like directions. Also, using labels like “”, it sets the doll into a contemporary context where celebrities and influencers represent wealth and fertility.
