“The Economics of Evolution explores our changing relationship with biology as economic factors become more influential in the evolution of natural organisms. Set in the context of India’s growing biotech and pharmaceutical industry, two fictional companies have been created to tell the story of how the search for more profit and secure transfer of info could lead to radical techniques and new species of pigeon.” (Studio PSK)
