Intelligent Sperm On-line 1999


This performance was designed for universities that have donor scouts looking for “custom” product for their fertility clinics. It performs the aims and methods of the current eugenic meat market. In this action a CAE member functions as a representative of a fertility clinic (BioCom). Live on screen via the Internet is a “customer” who is interested in finding a sperm donor. The representative gives his pitch (using the language of eugenics) as to why the young university students should donate to the clinic and how much money they could make. In the audience is a confederate who volunteers to make a donation. The customer looks him over and gives an OK, generally to the horror of the audience. The performance ends as they go off to sign a contract.
