Eduardo Kac's newest Bioart piece lets the artist live in his work, literally!

You may be familiar with George Gessert's hybrid irises and Steichen's delphiniums, but the latest large scale installation by Eduardo Kac is composed of a new transgenic organism that is partially petunia and partial Eduardo himself. He names this new part plant part animal organism the `Edunia' and it is part of a show opening April 17th at the Weisman Art Museum, Minneapolis. Take a look at the artist's website for more information.
