spermANIMAL favorite Prune Nourry wants you to anonymously give her your seed — along with an heap of personal information — for her new art project SpermBar. Your DNA-ladden donation will then be expertly mixed by a cocktail chef and served on a “food cart” style mobile near Central Park.


When the cart rolls out, a second wave of participants will be able to select a truly unique mixed drink, fit to the specific material of each donation. There’s a “smorgasbord” of genetic options — eye color, religion, baby cuteness…

So there’s no real sperm or alcohol in these spunky, fruity beverages, but just like Nourry’s ovarian meals at the Procreative Dinner show, the artists concoctions are heavy with commentary about our near-eugenic obsession with selective breeding. When it comes to sperm donor banks, we’re hurtling towards the Gattica future.
