Work of art I would like to make

Continuing with the skeletal theme in my work, I would like to explore slight variations of species in existence now to examine the possibilities of genetic modifications and the implications that could have on any new hybrids created in 'the world 25 years' from now.
My work would continue to use a sheet metal manipulation to represent the skeleton and with slip casting ceramic elements such as skulls. These variations on current species to create new ones could be very slight changes to what we can already see in existence or I could explore more dramatic and possibly even scarey possibilities that realistically might not be that far away.
Any changes or modifications to current species would be represented in skeletal format.
