Robot taxidermy provokes thoughts…

France Cadet artist has created what was clearly intended to be a treaty giving to think about animal rights, the evolving relationship of man and animal, our ethical concerns about hunting, and ever-morphing perception of what it means to be human … But it comes as broad as looking really, really cool. Using the best half of the Aibo wannabe-I-Cybie robot dog, Cadet reprograms the half-bots – called “hunting trophies” – to detect movements and react with anger when a viewer approaches. There are 11 different species in the collection, including a robot impala, lion, zebra, warthogs. Guess what? Despite these noble objectives philosophical, everyone is more lovely than the last. Want.
