Giving Birth to Myself

In Giving Birth to Myself, Mayer deconstructs the linear nature of the family tree through technology. By digitally editing her original birth footage, she has entered her own narrative, reconstructing her lineage by removing her mother and replacing herself as the child-bearer. Mayer appears as both the mother and the baby, the creator and creation are inseparable.
