SECAUCUS, N.J. - A controversial art exhibit by a Brooklyn artist uses road kill and other dead animal remains to make its point. It's a new take on nouveau that may not be for the faint of heart.

I have to look away when I am driving by roadkill. I don't think I could voluntarily view it.

Okay, unusual artforms usually try and make a point of some kind. I'm not sure I get what he is trying to say without more information.

I'm sorry, but this is not art. Although, I guess art does make people talk, which is what we are all doing by commenting on this article. It's still sick.

This is really bizarre. I can't imagine people paying to see this. This is sad. I see enough road kill where we live and always feel so bad for the animals.

Art? That's considered art? I have a different name for it. At least the animals used were road kill and not animals killed specifically for the project.

This is very much like a nightmare I had, in which corpses of men, women, and children were shipped over from Africa (usually Darfur) and then let to rot in public places like airports and NY streets and subways to 'raise awareness'. Everyone called it Great Art, and all the Artiste crowd congratulated themselves on how much they'd made all the masses 'aware'.

... Except said masses said the exact same things. They felt like they were the sole recipients of the knowledge, in a smug, disgusting way. They didn't DO anything about it, they just got to say how sensitive and 'aware' they were.

This is a LOT like that. This guy must have spent a ton of money *driving around*, the very thing he was objecting to with this 'art', to pick up animal corpses, and a bunch more on preservatives and assembly and license to exhibit. Rather than, you know, doing anything to help animals that are still alive to be helped. Rather than spend ten dollars on a bag of dog food to donate, or volunteering at a shelter.

And that is why this is terrible.

It may be called and considered by some to be art and that is their right. To me it is disturbing. I can't see anything of beauty in it and it tells me nothing. This is only my opinion, some may feel differently.

Being an arist and a pet lover I have to admit it doesn't offend me. It's art because he says it's art. It doesn't matter what it's made of. Using shocking materials is part of being an artist. Art doesn't always have to be beautiful. In fact despite the materials used in the A.D.A.M. progject there was a certain amount of beauty present. That's not to say it's not edgey and uncomfortable or had to look at - it is certainly all those things. But it might also be beautiful, insightful and dark as well.

I think if he wanted to make a point about the how disposable our culture views animals he used the perfect materials - animal parts that have been discarded by humans.

Brilliant, political, offensive. Art.

This is very distrubing and sick. This is not art in my view. Anyway can take a dead animal and arrange it someway and call it "art". But it's really just a dead animal.

While I think this is kind of gross, I do appreciate the point he is making, He did not kill these animals, they were easily found because of our human culture-- we kill so many animals on the road and they can be found in almost any dumpster. His "art" is extreme and unpleasant, but it certainly does have a valid point. While I do not agree with the way it was executed, I appreciate that he brought attention to an important issue. It certainly got me thinking . . .

I agree with your three points. I am an artist but a true artist wants to share the beauty of life even when it deals with issues like death. There is no excuse for this type of demonstration! I hope the artist community lets this gore filled person know what beauty there is in life. Why not through approved mediums display the horrors that the road kill endured that led to it being road kill?

This artist has taken something very ugly and used it creatively. He didn't kill the animals or harm them in any way; instead, he salvaged parts of them to consruct something of graphic interest and to create a message. Art often explores new themes and techniques; if I were an animal, I think I'd rather be preserved in this way than tossed off the road to decay.
