Soviet Experiments in Dog Cyborgs

cyborg

I don’t know where this actually came from (click for more images), but 1) It’s a nice Photoshop job, and 2) It’s a reference to the real experiments by Soviet Dr. Sergei Bryukhonenko, who kept disembodied dog heads alive for short periods of time.

On a probably related note, I did find the source for this other puzzling image:

agarthad

"Their last solemn moment, before we buried the gate and the truth with it. Pyramiden, Spitsbergen 1928".

It’s part of an ARG, Mysterium Magnum.

Which probably has nothing to do with the cyborg dog, but both may be related to ARGs. Or viral campaigns. In any event, Photoshop, nice Photoshops. [via Nerdcore, Eduardo Lisboa]

UPDATE: From the comments at BoingBoing, the source for the cyborg dog, actually “The Kollie”, is an art project by “hotshkin”. Click for the full gallery:

    “Ethereal,” whispers the vessel.
    Trembling transmitted frequencies become glimmering.

    Ha, I love this. It reminds me of the “We 3” comic.
