Gen-pets. Genetically Engineered Pets for Sale.
“Imagine walking into a department store or any big box store, and while browsing an aisle you find a display where packages hang; which, at first glance, seem to contain large action figures. Upon closer inspection, you realize they are actually bizarre, altered, bipedal mammals sealed in a plastic bubble where they uneasily rest in some kind of induced hibernation. ”
“They are there, ready to take home and add to your life as the next entertainment gadget; bioengineered creatures, mass-produced, and pre-packaged for your convenience.”
Gen-pets is an amazing project by a canadian sculptor called Adam Brandejs. There is even a full accompanying website to promote this fictional product.
I want one!
