The Gift

Whilst contemplating IVF using a donor egg, I started to reflect upon receiving the gift of a donor egg. It led me to think about what was involved in both giving, and receiving, a gift. Initially, the idea of creating an image of a donor egg felt too potent, and so I decided to generalise and think about gifts in general. The gift box is different colours on different sides as I wanted to represent different aspects or shades of receiving a gift. The red side shows more positive sides of receiving a gift. The purple side depicts what the gift is and the plum side, the more negative aspects and feelings
