Lizardians is a  3-D animation that depicts a world in the near future, in which a technology that applies the axolotl salamander’s genetic powers of regeneration to the human body has been commercialized for mass consumption. Human body is produced and sold as health and beauty product by a biotech corporation, RENEW. The first channel shows the reality of a worker whose job is to regenerate her body parts in isolation, the middle channel stands for the corporation itself, and the third channel shows the reality of a worker who takes care of the defective limb products. Lizardians is a story which questions the value of labor, authorship and creativity in a world that is controlled by capitalistic system.
