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.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
