    Really a disgusting photo. Insulting to both people and pigs.

    Actually that’s a dog hybrid. Kinda looking forward to what chimeras they actually make.

    Honestly, I expect the first batch of hybrids will enable a cure for Alzheimer\’s – specifically, enabling the testing phase for the alzheimer\’s vaccine without waiting for a distressingly large number of \”compassionate access\” exceptions, which will likely make a single- or double-blind study impractical, even if legal (or moral or ethical, for that matter).

    Piccinini\’s sculpture, if I remember correctly, is a pig-dog-ape-woman hybrid. I believe her stated goal was to show that sort of hybrid in the most human way she could come up with, leave her audience with some kind of connection, lest they be rendered out of sight and out of mind in organ farms somewhere. My guess about intention is to prevent us taking lightly the possibility of accidentally making a race of nonhuman *people* (remember, it\’s what\’s between the ears that counts, and that\’s based on proteins – the same proteins we need to match for transplants) to be cut up for spare parts.
