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.

Funny Fake nature!
.. and this work is good craftsmanship

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
