Scorpion by Vincent Fournier

In the project Post Natural History, French artist Vincent Fournier draws on speculative fiction to reimagine the Animal Kingdom after it merges with modern technology. The resulting creatures show how humanity might engineer nature to suit technological progress and our everyday needs. "These creatures are simultaneously familiar and strange," explains Fournier. "[We] ‘know’ the rabbit, lizard or dragonfly we see, but upon closer inspection, we realise there are certain differences. Together, they surmise how humans could intervene in evolution." Here, a scorpion is remodeled to aid in semi-automated and remote surgery. Explore the rest of Fournier's menagerie on his website.
