[Nettime-bold] Stop cruelty to animals

Dear Nettimers
A Japanese in NY is conducting and promoting a self-claimed art activity --- Bonsai Kitten. Instead of using plants he uses animal (kitten in this case) as material to grow into shape he want. (like square-shaped watermelon). He raise kittens inside jars feeding them chemicals that will soften their bone and let them growth into the shape of the jar.
I have to say that I don't know if this is a faked art event or a real business initiative. But the photos on his website are just horrifying. I would rather raise this "false alarm" than letting something terribly cruel to pass our notice. Please check his website http://www.bonsaikitten.com .Should any people know animal right organizations in NY tell them this crazy project and ask them to check out the web site.
