11. Post Mortem
When I learned that I would become a father, I started to wonder what it means to create or to disintegrate. What control do we have over these phenomena and on what universal scale can men have an impact. I started to worry about whether my son would be as reckless and disregarding of his own safety as I am. Would he inherit these genes from me, his co-creator? Through this project, I am trying to express my admiration of and bewilderment with these phenomena, as well as my insecurity about my future role as a father and the responsibilities it entails.
Now that a little over a year has passed since my son’s birth I can at least say, that I’ve managed to keep him safe during this crucial period of his life. I’ve provided him with food (homegrown, a luxury these days, which I defended from mole crickets and a multitude of other pests) and protected him from hornets and other sorts of dangerous insects. Still, the thing that scares me the most – teaching this little man how to be a good human being – is yet to come so all of my insecurities are intact.
