Contemporary Immaculate Conceptions

Conflating scientific intervention in childbirth with the Christian mythos of sexless “immaculate” conception, this multiple presents four test tubes posing as pseudo Christmas tree ornaments, each representing an actual incident of choreographed conception gone awry. Cards tell each baby’s story. In leatherette presentation box and paperboard box.
