Re: [-empyre-] Networked Performance

Please warn us about the inclusion of  "art" which causes harm to animals. I
used to work at the NYU Brain Lab
and have seen it all, but I think art should be metaphorical, and that is
why I am an artist. In the lab, an animal killed was called a "sacrifice",
and it had all the aura of an ancient priesthood and ritual murder. Most of
the animals killed in the lab seemed more to satisfy  the exigencies of a
grant  than to learn more about the brain. When artists do similar
experiments as art it seems cruel and pointless.  Is this art as fascism?
Am  I alone in my response to this work ?
