Avian Android
Sculpture, android bird's voices, a mechanical reconstruction of organic life-forms, electronically controlled

by Judith Fegerl

Taking „The Chinese Nightingale", a tale of Hans Christian Andersen, as a startingpoint to delevop an individual view on the topic of mechanical reproduction of a living organism.

The chant of the nightingale, famous for its beautiful and unique sound, is being serialized and reduced to its very essence. The power of reproduction and massproduction is indirect porportional to the intesity of the auratic experience of the natural phenomenon.

Seperating, isolating, synthetisizing and multiplying the avian voice.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
