Every day, the machine received a certain amount of food.

    art? no, shit!

    The machine daily delivered turds that were signed and sold for $1,000 each.

    Delvoye is fast developing a reputation on the international art circuit as something of a hard case. His work regularly appears on the auction block -- last November, an elaborately carved wood cabinet filled with 32 circular saw blades painted with scenes in Delft China blue sold for $21,150 at Christie's New York. Visitors to the 2000 Venice Biennale probably noticed his life-sized carved walnut replica of a cement truck.

    And his continuing project, a herd of pigs covered with tattoos done by the best needle-men Antwerp's red-light district has to offer, is currently appearing at venues around the globe. Marcel, a pig adorned with a Harley-Davidson tattoo, has visited several European cities, while Bonnie and Clyde spent last Thanksgiving at the San Francisco Art Institute and Boris and Tatiana went to the Moscow Art Fair. The artist also makes stuffed tattooed pigs (one sold at auction in 1998 for $12,500) and tattooed pig skins ($4,830 in 1999). Delvoye lives and works in Ghent.

    what a weirdo.

    Thats quite strange.

    Better yet would be to create a machine with a computerized brain that would decide whether or not it wanted to eat, and what it wanted to eat.

    Absurd? "Imagine a very rich man who plays golf," Delvoye said. "He spends a massive amount of time and money for just one purpose: to put a little ball into a hole. Isn't that absurd?"

    Holy crap! I actually saw that thing at an exhibit at the New Museum in nyc. At the end there's a little conveyor belt for the balls of poop to roll out on. There are big clear plastic vats of all the stomach juices and what not that the machine uses to do the digestive thing.

    At the same place there were also books upstairs about his tattooed pigs. Where's PMB? He'd appreciate this.

    he bacteria (E. Coli) are fed with sugar, and while metabolising, electrons produced are captured to power two motors and a control circuit to move the robot towards the light source in burst motions.
    From a chemist/science affiliated stand point, this is absolutely amazing and mind bending.

    Thanks for the links bugman.
