Kinder/Garden comprised the greenhouse cultivation of fetal-shaped zucchini. Using 3d printing and vacuum-forming to create moulds that the vegetables could grow into, the project shaped living forms using virtual data. Despite, and through, its absurd nature, Kinder/Garden investigated the effects of biopower associated with genetic manipulation, surveillance and reproductive technologies.  A detailed blog of the project is here.
