take a chunk of meat,  connect to computer, upload data, create mini-being.

in this whimsically ominous 3 minute short film, Animade and director Tom Judd hint at a future of possible desktop genetic engineering by any old bored zomber playing willy-nilly with computer toys.

“This short film is the result of Tom’s masters at the Royal College of Art. After 18 months of experimenting with microprocessors and eyebrow hats, Tom realised that he wanted to get a film under his belt before leaving the MA. His experimentation with the Arduino micro controller sparked the idea of programatic meat which led him directly into the very current ethical subject of Synthetic Biology.”
