Where R U From

WhereRUFrom(2016) is a self-portrait of the artist’s origins, her true beginning. Curiosity about childbirth and chromosomal sex determination inspired the project’s narrative. Consider that a man has two distinct chromosomes: X and Y, while a woman has 2 chromosomes that are the same: X and X. Imagine a race then between the X and Y chromosomes. Whoever gets to the egg first decides the child’s sex!
