[Posthuman Wombs], 2022

[Posthuman Wombs] is a virtual essay, a tender trip into the belly of the pregnant Posthuman. Here, gender is not binary and nature and technology are not in opposition to one another. This pregnancy, rather, is technology. This body is fiction and reality. [Posthuman Wombs] is an autotheoretical exploration of a non-normative pregnancy and the desire to find a community in otherness. It is a speculation with a future in which all bodies can be pregnant.
