We first saw this video about a year ago, but couldn't find a way to put it into the print magazine. Sako Kojima is a sculptor, painter, and the most convincing hamster we've ever seen. Her installation/performance "Why I Became a Hamster" included treats, housing, chew toys, and food, all scaled to her size. Kinda makes you want to pet her behind the ears.
(Via Boing Boing.)
Kojima has the hamster thing down to a science; you have to wonder if she's the victim of some truly tragic transgenic experiment.
