 About Parturient

The Par-tu-ri-ent project is focussed on the future parents and childbearing, with the possibility to grow and design your child in an external pod. Through this project the students were able to open a platform that invites to think together in a new way and identify obstacles and opportunities around the notion of childbearing. What would society look like if

Par-tu-ri-ent is the future?

 

The students designed a speculative context to open the debate on the thin line between design, technology and ethics. By shifting the focus of the discussion from a purely scientific approach to a social approach, to an environment where we can get a realistic impression of what the consequences of the progress of biotechnology and biodesign could be.
