Perfect Baby Showroom
Perfect Baby Showroom is an interactive installation that imagines a not-so-futuristic world where parents can select their ideal baby from a menu of “perfect” infants. The installation is realized as a futuristic set where babies rest in a nursery made of laboratory bassinets, ready for parents to select their ideal characteristics. The walls are papered with electrical outlets, and the floor becomes a blanket of tangled wires. The sterile space imagines a future in which parents, maybe too immersed in their smartphones to even have sex, go to a supermarket to select a genetically-customizable infant.
