“Did you know you could make art out of dead animals? YES!”

posted by on November 8 at 15:59 PM

Via Unfogged, which calls it “the most awesome thing you will read today.”

You’re invited on a FREE tour of the New York City Chinatown Garbage. Did you know you could make art out of dead animals? YES! I am going to show you how to collect dead animals from the garbage in Chinatown to make your own personal taxidermy! This is the first NYC CHINATOWN GARBAGE TAXIDERMY TOUR! You will learn how to dig in the garbage for dead animals. You can make art out of these animals. It’s really cool!. I’ve found everything from sharks to frogs to plain old unidentifiable crap. Sometimes I find nothing interesting, but that is what makes it fun. You never know! RSVP is appreciated but not required. RAIN OR SHINE.

Note: Flashlights not required, because he “searches by feel.”

This could be the most awesome documentary subject ever...or a ridiculous fraud.

Huh. Should I even have to ask why Chinatown?

That is so gross.

Searches by feel. Finally, the slog made me laugh out loud.

In my grandfather's day, they used to call it "taxidermy".

Check out any of Linda Dershang's places, you're sure to run into numerous examples of the form.

Wow -- did anyone else check out the insane Hallowe'en costumes on that blog? Not for the easily offended!

There's a Seattle artist who makes sculptures using plaster casts of roadkill. Can't remember his name.
