This work shows the technology in connection with the nature, how we trade this? The cow, an animal used like a machine to produce milk, meat, leather. I was fascinated in a positive and negative way by recent report from China where geneticists have successfully introduced human genes into 300 dairy cows (but just 4 of them survived) to produce milk with the same properties as human breast milk. The motivation is that human milk contains high quantities of key nutrients that can help boosting the immune system of babies and reduce the risk of infections. The video include also the sense of “depriving” nature of its own original character, and in particular the “cow” which is a “sacred” animal in many religions. This work suggests this sense of alienation and cows are represented like a container, in which genetic engineers replace pieces like motor components and cows become real “milk machines”. The video however ends up with a positive spin, “cows free escape” looking at the other side of scientific discovery and knowledge, which allows to evade from the prison of diseases. (The concept was developed with Prof. Luigi Nadini and Prof. Clelia Di Serio, San Raffaele, Milan) The video was made in a farmstead near Pavia, Italy
