24-year old Canadian commercial artist Adam Brandejs has fooled me too with his latest atrwork, the genpets! Genpets are supposed to be the creation of Bio-Genica, by combining and modifying existing DNA, and are portrayed as real living pre-packaged, mass produced, bioengineered pets, with blood, bones, muscle, who will bleed if you cut them and die if mistreated. You may find all about his creation on his site, together with the what, why and how. The main point of Genpets is to get the public thinking about the concept of bioengineering. Previous works of art included the flesh shoe and the animatronic heart.
