    • Insanity?

  • 11.
    • Her artworks reflect her interests in world issues such as bioethics, biotechnologies, the environment, cloning, stem cell research and gene therapy.
  • 12.
    • Her art engages our contemporary world in all its social and political complexity and contradiction—the destruction and preservation of the natural world , the promises and failures of cutting edge technology , its related topic of ethical responsibility , the allure of consumer culture , and the influence of popular culture .
    • As such exploring the interaction of science, technology and the environment.
  • 13.
    • WHAT FOSTERS PICCININI’S MOTIVATION TO CREATE SUCH ‘DIFFERENT’ ARTWORKS?
    By exploring concepts of what is ‘natural’ in the digital age, Piccinini brings a deeply personal perspective to her work by pursuing an interest in the human forms and its potential for manipulation and enhancement through bio-technical intervention, a very real subject that Piccinini is quite actively passionate in; depicted through her art.
  • 14.
    • Piccinini’s works focusing on genetic manipulation…
  • 15.
    • WHAT DOES PICCININI USE TO CREATE HER ARTWORKS??
    • Piccinini doesn’t specialise in one specific media when creating her artworks; as such she uses a variety of different media forms such as sculpture, video, drawing, installation and digital prints.
  • 16.
    • So if I asked you now to create something that reflects a mixture of both science, nature and technology what could you create for me?
  • 17.
