Sculpture + procedural / generative art for an article about parabiosis: Exploring How Young Blood Helps Reverse Signs of Aging in Old Brains. “Scientists are zeroing in on the ways that parabiosis — treating old animals with young blood — alters gene activity, shining light on its rejuvenating effects.”
I Sculpted & posed the foxes using ZBrush, then filled their silhouettes with blood cells using X-Particles. Each fox’s clock indicates age. Elderly foxes await their turn. After injection, the young, rejuvenated foxes' clocks are rewound and they bounce away energetically.
The research did not involve foxes. But "art is what you can get away with”, no?
