3D-Printed Animals Demonstrate Stark Truth Of Endangered Wildlife
Images for International Fund for Animal Welfare highlight fragility of endangered species
While technology might seem like the solution to many of our problems, Y&R Paris highlights one thing that no tech gadget can really reverse: damage to endangered animals. A series of images, created for the International Fund for Animal Welfare, depict animals with a 3D printing mechanism above them. It looks like the device is trying to re-build the animals, but their insides are exposed, their bodies already damaged.
At the bottom of the images, one line of text reads “if only they were this easy to reproduce.” According to dezeen, the series was created to depict the “irreplaceable and irreversible aspects of killing wildlife.” The images emphasize that not even the most advanced technology can reverse damage done to natural life.
