I've been lurking around the community for a couple weeks now and just wanted to say "hello" and share something i came across just recently.. see if we can get some conversation stirring a bit in this community.
A friend of mine who lives in Sweden showed me this.. What are everyone's thoughts on it..
If you care about animals AT ALL.
There's an artist, Nathalia Edenmont, who kills cats, mice, doves, rabbits, and other animals, mutilates their bodies, and then takes their photographs. She's on exhibit, among other places, at the Wetterling Gallery in Sweden. She has taken the top halves of five white mice and made them into finger puppets. She beat a cat to death with a stick. And this is called art. This is not only inhumane, but morally reprehensible.
