The designers and artists in this publication evaluate human-animal relations and design scenarios for a different future.

'Real' animals are increasingly disappearing. Today, animals are 'optimised' almost entirely based on the ideas of people: they are created in the laboratory, bred as organ donors, and their flesh is grown in petri dishes. How are common perceptions of animals changing as a result? The designers and artists in the publication go on a search for the 'right degree' in designing such creatures. They delve through the possibilities of the human-animal relationship and design scenarios for a different future.
