I am in the process of creating a new sperm necklace! I am expanding my series on sperm and ovum as wearable art objects. The orginal sperm and ovum necklaces are about role reversal between the sexes in a mondern day society, taken down to the biological level. These are about an appreciation for the physiological process, as well as a celebration of what defines a male and female.
Now I am playing with how the new neck pieces will be better and more aesthetically pleasing. I 3-D modeled the sperm and printed them in ABS plastic. Figuring out how they lay and sit on an individual's neck is time consuming, but the designs I can be fun! I love the reaction I get from different people when they see them, sometimes they are taken aback, but most times people think they are fun.
