LEO FIDJELAND & LINNEA VÅGLUND – PINK CHICKEN 
PROJECT. Pink Chicken Project proposes genetically modifying all chickens in the world to have pink bones and feathers, using a novel biotechnology called “CRISPR Gene Drive”. This intervention, somewhere between utopia and dystopia, would modify the geological trace of humankind – colouring it pink! 

Jury citation:
Skilfully made, speculative design that does the job. It makes us raise our eyes, alter perspectives and fantasise about other futures in an unimaginably long time frame. Do we really want to end up as pink sediment? Pink Chicken looks death in the eye, but with a smile.
