Macabre, or just plain gross? We aren’t sure what to make of a recent ‘art’ piece that made its debut at the KunstiRai ArtFair in Amsterdam which takes the artist’s pet Cat and converts the fluffy friend into a Hell of a helicopter. The blogosphere has ignited with opinions as to whether converting one’s deceased pet into a flying machine is in bad taste, or mildly unique of an idea.
Dutchman Bart Jansen decided to honor his furry friend – aptly named Orville – after it was killed by a car, into a one of a kind “Orvillecopter.” Jansen describes his artwork as mostly about what happens when the race for technological progress meets human error.
“After a period of mourning, he received his propellers posthumously,” Jansen wrote on the video’s description. “Now he is flying with the birds. The greatest goal a cat could ever reach!”. We really just wanted to share this information with you all and ask.. what do we make of this?
