___Utility Pets consists of products and services highlighting the ethical implications of xenotransplantation – the transplantation of animal organs into humans. In the near future, it’s possible that pigs will be engineered with the DNA of newborn babies, giving each person their own personal living organ bank. Thesecreatures – known as ‘knock-out pigs’ in science, are unique lifeforms. Utility Pets looks at what domestic objects and arrangements might be necessary were a knock-out pig to live in its human’s house.
