Blending Goldfishes is ART?

Now…. How sick is this????? And this is called art….!!!

An art display which invited the public to put live goldfish through a food blender did not constitute cruelty to animals, a Danish court has ruled.The goldfish were placed on display swimming in the blenders, and visitors were told they could press the “on” button if they wanted.

At least one visitor did, killing two goldfish.

The exhibit was created by Chilean-born Danish artist Marco Evaristti, who was apparently trying to test visitors’ sense of right and wrong. Mr Evaristti said at the time he wanted to force people to “do battle with their conscience”.

The idea, he said, was to “place people before a dilemma: to choose between life and death.”

“It was a protest against what is going on in the world, against this cynicism, this brutality that impregnates the world in which we live,” he said.
