Unborn0X9 was an initiative by Shu Lea Cheang and Ewen Chardronnet.
Unborn0x9 is an art installation and performance questioning the development of foetuses in artificial wombs outside of the body (ectogenesis) and the cyborg future of parenting. It explores the role of obstetric science in the increasingly technological experience of human reproduction, speculating on new types of bonding that may emerge with artificial wombs.
A robotic arm is performing a real time echography of the baby inside an artificial womb while the data generated is tranformed into sound.
This project was incredibly challenging because it required many different skills and was performed in a really short time !
