why is there a need to change an animal-or anything for that thought. just leave pigs to be pigs and birds to be birds etc. in todays society we are constantly searching to improve or simply change something.why cant we just leave things be the way they were made or born,.nothing is ever good enough anymore.
although i do like the concept of this project in some ways, i do not agree in the actual change of an animal.i do love it as an art project and rate it for its originality.
the end.

Domesticated or farmed pigs have nowhere to go except to the oposite side of the pen. If they needed to migtare or see the Mona Lisa in the Louvre they would have wings by now. End of issue.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
