Artist Marni Kotak turned Bushwick's Microscope Gallery into her own maternity ward earlier this month, inviting one and all to come see her during her ninth month of pregnancy, and eventually inviting a hand-selected group of strangers to be there on the big day... which was yesterday.

Baby X, now known as Baby Ajax, was born at 10:17 a.m., weighing in at 9 lbs 2 ounces, according to Runnin' Scared, who arrived after his birth to find Kotak "calmly eating a banana" with the placenta in a bowl next to her. In fact, more remnants from the birth will be on display at the gallery through November 7th, should you be into that sort of thing.

The gallery has a Vimeo account, but it's unclear if they'll release the birthing video there. It will, however, be shown at the gallery, according to Bushwick Daily, who were on the scene during go time, calling it "magical."
