I couldnt get the video. I dont know if it would have shown anything i could consider art, anyway.
I had to look up most of the defining words that she used to describe her process. After that, it still made no sense to me.
And...do you have a clue how an egg can be called fertilized, by a fat cell, from a different species? Or at all?
Im not a scientist or artistically educated, but...come on...

No, an egg cannot be fertilized by a fat cell. I think the woman is simply nuts and grasping for relevancy, myself. If so, she has failed. JMHO

I cannot get the one on Vimeo to play, here's a longer one from YouTube, but not in English and no subtitles.

A faux fur lined tubular dog house with a light fixture she breathes into. And a makeshift laboratory kind if set up.
I listened and watched all of it, i think if it was in english, i still wouldnt have gotten it.
Art? I reckon i am just not that hip.

I couldn't hang for the whole thing. The one that wouldn't play showed her naked cuddling with two dogs on the fixed screen...not really something I'm interested in either. I just find the whole breastfeeding a pup and mixing human and canine cells distasteful, beyond the fact that I cannot qualify any of it as "artistic".

Admittedly I'm pretty warped and twisted...but that is waaaaay beyond acceptable to me. It has me embracing my inner prude. Actually, it introduced me to my inner prude...didn't know she was even hiding in there! (mischief)

Ha!
I think we all have one hiding deep inside.
I, too, am a live and let live kind of woman.

On the border of """"art""" and zoophilia, and those are huge quotation marks.

Bizarre to say the least.
I did not research this story, but experience tells me that RT (a know Russian Propaganda outlet) is less than reliable when it come to just making stuff up (a la the Onion).

Either way I can see some interesting scientific advances - and warning - coming from this type of 'art'. Like learning the mechanism for cross breeding species and the warnings of such 'moreauian' acts.

And finally the potential horror of government forces lactation as a food source for the supper-rich.

I understand that many distrust RT for propaganda reasons. While they may display bias, as all media outlets do, I have never seen them "making stuff up", and are often more accurate than your US news source of choice, whichever that may be.

Often. I do subscribe to it as part of a balanced media approach.

I've seen some pretty weird and or repugnant things presented in the guise of "art", but this just might take the cake.

Kind of, here's the about page of the organization. It is focused on technology and futuristic concepts.
