Mutants and Hybrids and Clones…Oh My!

You’ve seen the headlines. Scientists have cracked the genomic code—the code that makes us uniquely human yet connects us to all living thing. From test tube babies to designer genes, from Dolly the Sheep to Glofish and Enviropigs, new advances in genetic science are changing the landscape of life itself. . . and sparking a firestorm of debate. Proponents see the end of disease and starvation; opponents fear man-made contagions and race-breeding. Like it or not, the future is here.

Everybody in the (gene) pool! Embracing this brave new world of possibilities, artist Patricia Piccinini creates a virtual nursery of human/animal hybrids, moon-eyed mutations, and transgenic creations. Her tender visions of art imitating life imitating science that already exists are raw, vulnerable, and all too human. They are the next generation of Frankensteins. Not monsters. Not mistakes. They are us. And, like us, they need love.
