Conceptions
200 Days



200 Days began with the knowledge that as an artist  I'd filled my body to the limit  with pigments, solvents, acids, glues, resins, and coffee. Not a perfect breeding ground, and to top it off my husband, a potter, inhales toxic chemicals with every glazing and firing. I was sure my child would be a green-spotted jellyfish.

Thinking I couldn't be alone in this, I asked my friends what they had used during their pregnancy that worried them. Every woman had some misgiving, and so I added alcohol, cigarettes, cosmetics, cleaning fluids, anti-depressants and analgesics to the list. I was also warned that my very thoughts could seriously effect my child, so I've bottled up some things I thought about during that time. Somehow my boy was born fully intact.
