Patricia Piccinini's predomesticated scooters

Patricia Piccinini, one of my personal favorite artists, has done a series of sculptures that I for some reason never have come across. It is equally stunning as her other works, and perfectly fits the theme of a 'liquifying' world, where things cease to be things, but become part of an ecology where technology and biology are freely shapeable. Her sculptures of Italian Vespa scooters sitting in animal-like postures conjecturally show technology in its raw, predomesticated form.
