The sculpture "Seed" by Stefan Herbst belongs to the series "Biological Incubator", through which the artist explores the problems of identity, class inequality and demographic crisis. In this object Herbst has embodied the fantastic image of newborns emerging autonomously from a technologically advanced incubator. In this way the sculptor addresses the theme of childhood loneliness, caused by the indifference or aggression of parents, who create offspring unconsciously and are not morally prepared to have children. According to the author, this problem is not given enough attention, while it forms generations and communities of people, on which the development of the future depends.
