An article in The Atlantic summarizes and explains a recent scientific paper from Nature about an investigtaion into, and a success with, the possibility of creating an artificial womb that may improve the chances of severely premature human babies to survive and thrive. The womb, it is thought, would help the prematurely born to complete their natural development ex-utero.
The images that accompany the magazine article are resonant with science fiction movies and with moments from Critical Design published by Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby.
I am thinking of, most recently, I Am Mother. Also would be scenes from Alien, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, and the zombie film based on the videogames Resident Evil.
