'Bud', 2002 by Rob Kesseler (British)
Glass and genetically modified soybeans
"Farmers, gardeners and scientists have long sought to improve
the quality, yield and resilience of plants through various forms
of modification. But nothing has caused more debate and divided
opinion than genetic modification. The potential benefits in
contrast to the irreversible dangers of interfering with the very
building blocks of life are not always easy to untangle. 'Bud'
reflects this duality and appears as both a trophy and time bomb."
