Creatures made to Measure

Animals and Contemporary Design

Animals have always been accompanied people—whether as food, labor, or social companions. While the number of house pets and services for four-legged animals are growing every year, “real” animals are increasingly disappearing from view. Today, animals can be optimized almost entirely based on the ideas of people: they are created in the laboratory, bred as organ donors, and their flesh grown in petri dishes. How are common perceptions of animals changing as a result? The designers and artists in the publication go on a search for the “right degree” in designing such creatures. They therefore run through the possibilities of the human-animal relationship and simultaneously through design scenarios for a different future. Artists: Martin Avila, BLESS, Melanie Bonajo, The Center for Genomic Gastronomy, Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell, Center for PostNatural History, Marcus Coates, Thalia de Jong, Aleksandra Domanović, Konstantin Grcic, Christine Herdin/Katharina Wahl, Max Kosoric/Sanne Pawelzyk, Silvia Knüppel, Dietrich Luft, Christien Meindertsma, Next Nature Network, Ana Rajcevic, Veronica Ranner, Peter Schäfer, Johanna Schmeer, Susana Soares, Sputniko, ThreeASFOUR, Thomas Thwaites, Marije Vogelzang, Pinar Yoldas
