“Trial Child: Nurture a Better Nature” is an unconventional household drama set in an imagined future where self-control is the single most important quality in human development. Trial Child, a robotic replica of a couple's would-be child, is the newest technology. A tragicomic Pinocchio-esque tale, “Trial Child: Nurture a Better Nature” addresses issues surrounding the cyborg identity and our growing personification of robotics in relation to gender, identity, technological absurdity and family politics.
This project takes form in a video, a live performance and immersive installation.
