“Where do babies come from? How do I come into this world?” That was the question my three-year-old son asked, which I thought interesting. Those were simple yet challenging questions many parents have attempted to answer to their children. Back then I was able to explain it simply to him.
Those questions sparked my imagination. Portraying a matured nine-month-old baby in the womb, I lost myself in the creative process. Suddenly, I was seeing from the baby’s perspectives, feeling its many restrictive constraints before being borne.
