fecundity (noun)

  • the ability to cause or assist healthy growth
  • the ability to produce offspring
  • the creative power of the imagination 


With this installation, Bob Vanderbob proposes a mythological, poetic 
experience, a revitalization of the age-old archetype encompassing the 
nested metaphorical meanings of the notion of fecundity to include the 
agility of the mind and the potential of the imagination.

The installation is inspired by a Neolithic fecundity figure
found in Harappa, in the Indus Valley.

A first draft of this Artificial Mythology installation was showcased
