Amalthea 717

Aluminium, rubber, PVC, Merino sheepskin, 2023

Amalthea 717 is a bulky prototype of a bionic sheep, an electromechanical sibling to Dolly, the first mammal in history to be successfully cloned from an adult somatic cell, in 1996. Standing on its two back feet, Amalthea 717 is looking out the window and observing the world outside. The robotic body of Amalthea 717 is covered by real merino sheepskin.

Part of the ongoing project 'Chemistry and Physics in the Household'
