A Look Inside
Main Description
Raising existential questions and exploring themes of fascination and repulsion, this generously illustrated volume provides an insightful look into a world where living creatures can be molded in virtually unrestricted ways through genetic manipulation and biotechnology. A young girl completely covered with hair, deformed stuffed animals, and human animal hybrids are presented among other unsettling sculptures and installations in this collection.
