In Posse

Work In Progress: A mission to make 'female' sperm from my own stem cells

Throughout history semen has been revered as a magical substance – a totem of literal and symbolic potency. Patriarchal societies have described semen variously as life force, substance of the soul, a drop of the brain, divine, equal to ten drops of blood and that which sows the seeds of virtue in the female soul. In Posse aims to rewrite this cultural narrative; to use art and science to disrupt the hierarchy.
