“Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth!

For your love is better than wine” Sng 1:1

The female octopus dies while feeding the offspring.

This project is a study of female sexuality between the erotic desire to conceive and the fear of becoming a mother through my own optics. I have no experience of motherhood, so everything related to this topic is presented in the project by artificial objects or generative art.

In my imagination, the desirable and the frightening are strangely displaced and intertwined, forming a semantic glitch. I am trying to replicate this psychic effect using different methods: both the literal setting of incompatible elements and generative mechanisms that unexpectedly process information that has become my fix idea.

I am so scared to lose control of my body.

“I arose to open to my beloved,

and my hands dripped with myrrh,

my fingers with liquid myrrh,

on the handles of the bolt.” Sng 5:5
