"Mothering" is about our believed inability to have, as well as our choice to not raise children. Although fertility drugs and test tubes are a medical option, I struggle with the idea of being imprisoned by parenthood, much like a baby in a crib, which is made of test tubes in this piece. Instead, this depicts how we've anthropomorphized our dogs into the children we never had.
