BioVat
BioVat is the future of genetically mutated Animal product. The work aims to demonstrate the simplicity of disconnect by displaying a sculpture of a beast, a commodity, a scientifically modified outcome, as well as a living being. Science and design are currently collaborating to produce alternative future solutions for sustainable food production. This may one day become the research animal, the food source, we need not associate with, or even think about, as it's worth is limited to market value and demand. Does BioVat represent the future of commercially productive animals? A commodity worth its weight in gold! A future where animals are bred for convenience, to be manipulated, mutated and transformed into heavier, leaner, docile and generally an unflawed source of specifically designed organic materials. Will we finally, emotionally, be removed from the current 'farm Animal' collective? Tail docking, castration, dehorning, beak trimming and other practices all without anaesthetic or pain relief- could this become animal husbandry history. There would be no need to ship beasts to faraway lands, far enough away to disengage our own values of humane care and sensibilities. For the most part, we might only concern ourselves with our own needs and desires; living our own lives, getting the children to school, getting to work on time and paying our mounting bills.
