Colonizing mars brings forth a lot of questions, one being: who will we sent there? People will have to leave earth resulting in feelings of loneliness, being homesick and both psychological and health issues.
Infantory explores the possibility of artificial wombs on mars. This doesn’t only eliminate the health risks of pregnancy, but also creates a new kind of family; one in which there is no father or mother. There is no family so no one to leave behind, a clean slate, a fresh start.
To show the likelihood of colonization on Mars, we made prototypes, 3D renderings and diary entries. This was all shown during an exhibition at the Suzanne Biederberg Gallery in collaboration with ESA (European Space Agency).
