New York-based artist Christine Chin brings us Sentient Kitchen. The series, "which examines the convergence between technology and biology," borrows from both human anatomy and everyday kitchen tools -- creating a few thought-provoking and mildly disturbing sculptures.

From the artist:

Sentient Kitchen examines the convergence between technology and biology. As the machines that assist our lives become smarter and more architecturally complex, they borrow increasingly from the biological realm. Sentient Kitchen takes inspiration from some of nature's most ingenious engineering. What better way to dispense salt than through an organ that is highly developed to taste, and why not take advantage of the mammary gland's unique relationship to milk? While it is the nature of the human ego to cast suspicion on a challenge to human intellect,Sentient Kitchen products offer a non-threatening environment to explore the benefits of smarter, more sensitive solutions to our daily dining needs.
