作品簡介 身著實驗室配備的樂高人正對烤箱中的玉米進行測試與紀錄,這般超現實的場景反映了人工育種的當代農業景象。生物科技的進步提高了農業的產能與報酬,但其中牽涉到的基因改造、藥劑使用與種苗壟斷等問題,卻也引發上游生產端至下游消費者等相關團體的爭議。一如躺進日光浴機便能擁有理想的健康古銅膚色,放進烤箱中的基改玉米,是否也體現了人類憑其意志改造自然的生存智慧? The Lego Man, with laboratory equipment, is facing a corn in the oven and doing tests and recording. Such surreal scene reflects selective breeding in contemporary agriculture. The progress in biotechnology enhances the productivity and rewards of agriculture; however, it also triggers the controversy over GMO, usage of pesticide, and monopolization of seeds from upstream end of production to downstream of consumers, as well as other related groups. Does the GMO corn in oven, the same as one lies down in sunbathing machine for getting ideal and healthy tanned skin, show the living wisdom on human will to transform Nature as well?
