Genetically Modified Thumper was a piece originally created for a show at Uberbot in Florida.
There are 7 heads: each portraying a different emotional state. My intent with this piece was to show what happens when you mix 2 aspects of modern culture: Genetic Modification and Disney. By utilizing Thumper, who is a love-crazed rabbit from Bambi, I could lighten the mood and add humor to the dark ramifications of DNA alteration. The end result isn’t a creature mother nature would approve of, nor Walt Disney for that matter.
