Ova – The business of artificial fertility clinics, a fusion of biology and technology, raises new philosophical questions about birth and motherhood, and signals a fundamental shift in the meaning of fertility for future generations. This ongoing series explores the subject of (in)fertility in contemporary society from the perspective of human experience within a process where uncertainties and hopes are interwoven with technological possibilities.
