Big, Dead, Rotting, Silly Rabbit

So here's what other art collectives are doing! check out this article that came my way via Nayiri, from the New York Times (Nov. 6, 2005)

Gelatin, a Viennese art collective, comprised of Ali Janka, Florian Reither, Tobias Urban and Wolfgang Gantner have created a 200 ft long and 20 ft high stuffed pink bunny that is laying atop a hill in the northern region of Italy. 

"It's rotting away and the intestines are running out of its side, but it's really sweet," Mr. Janka said.  It's especially nice if you're interested in the way things rot: grass has sprouted through the rabbit's knitted skin, it's beginning to ooze a brown liquid, and animals have foraged inside. Decay, it seems, is the whole point. "You climb upon the rabbit and feel like a maggot in its flesh," Mr. Janka said. "And then you are so happily transforming into a fly, and floating away."

Any ideas, anyone?
