[ FF — Phase 4 ]

W O R K  I N  P R O G R E S S

What would happen when classic human reproduction is out of order and the new methods of PHASE 4 seem compellingly close? How would these Fertilised Futures fit to somehow infantile times?

PHASE 4 is an imaginary scenario of the project REPRO 2090 in which classic human reproduction appears as a romantic-whimsical tale from the past. Through the ongoing process of artificial human reproduction techniques in the last decades, the fertility rate decreased and went to zero. Other ways of multiplication had to be invented, as lots of monetary interest and empowered reproductive scientists became too influential on family trees.

 

This filmic scenario gives a little insight how the process of artificial reproduction could be performed in a home. Wouldn't change this possibility our male- female- relationship from scratch?

 
[The research is based on conversations with Prof Dr Jan J Brosens (Chair of Reproductive Medicine and Science, Imperial College, London) ]
