Surrogate Mechanica

Keith Kamholz’s Surrogate Machanica imagines a future where a robot is designed to carry a developing human baby in its transparent mechanical womb, sparing a couple the pain, trouble, and risk of carrying and delivering a child. The digital image provokes a conflict of emotion, where the work insights dark realities in which we are all over-worked and lacking the time to raise children we had in the past. Our human responsibility to reproduce is then handed off to a surrogate to bear the physical and emotional strain we can no longer manage in our career-driven lives. At the same time, it brings to light the possibility of allowing completely infertile couples or same sex partners to someday have a family of their own.
