UV-C is a short-wavelength ultraviolet radiation that disrupts DNA, rendering organisms unable to perform vital cellular functions.

As Desiring Sterilizing Desiring is displayed, this light has the potential to render the dangling seeds infertile overtime.

The work plays with two aspects of the English word sterile: cleanliness and infertility. On the one hand, the radiation clinically purifies the seeds. On the other, it results in their failure to germinate and ultimately produce feelings of sexual desire in the human body.
