Super Mutant Babies

February 1, 2013 | Marina Galperina

These babies are more prepared for the future than your babies. Those cooling folds in the skull will come in handy when global warming get worse. The extra puffy cheeks increase the “absorption of food, drugs and caffeine.” The sharp nose? Aerodynamic. The bloody dangling cluster of nerves where a toe should be? Um… Not sure about that one. Looks nifty.

The hyperrealistic sculptures in Agatha Haines‘ piece Transfiguration are on view at The School of Design, RCA’s student showcase, just profiled by Happy Famous Artists. They contemplate on how medical intervention improving human functions… the wonder and the horror of it all.

We’re not going to ask about the orifice in the head.
