Description

Black and white (B&W) digital image.

Text reads: "have you noticed things looking the same wherever you go? Does the homogenization of culture disturb you? So what about biotechnology? They say it will save the world. Corporate control of life itself is going too far... Let them know you dream of a different future. Resist the commodification of life. Resist biotechnology"

Imagery includes an ominous looking man holding vials of spilling liquid and syringes. His eyes bulge with dollar signs and the text "Government" and "Industry" are prominently written on his clothing. Surrounding this character are various examples of the perceived dangers of biotechnology -- genetically engineered food and animals, cloning, and "science as God." Additional images exemplify the homogenization of culture -- suburbs, car culture, chain store, etc.

One of the first posters made by the Beehive Design Collective. This graphic not only investigates the genetic modification of life, but zooms out to create a narrative about the homogenization of culture, food, and environment.
