Babies in boxes

Catherine Leutenegger's photo exhibition of babies in white cardboard boxes is quite engaging. The "babies" are actually polymer dolls from a Swiss distributor. They are sold online for anywhere from $100 to $200. Though the polymer and cardboard boxes that make for the visuals deal with manufacturing products, the deeper message is found in the idea of manufacturing human life – picking and choosing what one will actually birth. Maybe one day.
"We are living in a time when parents are on the point of being able to pick the sex of their children and even determine the hair coloring and other features," Leutteneger says, "It raises questions about where the limits are."
