I regrew my pets in the lab, from stem cells and 3D printing, my companions will live as long as I never stop crafting new parts for them.

In 2016, volunteer group Animal Avengers printed a new 3D shell for a tortoise that was injured in a forest fire in Brazil. This was a remarkable advance in the use of 3D technology in veterinary science, which now uses 3D printing in clinical and teaching situations, and it has noticeably improved outcomes for animal surgeries.

I opened up my womb to re-grow her limbs. She is the future, I am the past. I live on in her hands.

Transplant surgeries have grown increasingly complex, with facial transplant surgery now a common phenomenon. Currently, Austrian surgeon Harald Ott is working with a team at Massachusetts General Hospital to create a “biolimb” to transplant onto a monkey, after successfully transplanting a rodent limb. Jescheck Lynn takes this concept and imagines a world where successful limb transplants have restored a life changing limb – the hands. // Alex Massey
