Sounds like a very unoriginal repeat of Marco Evaristti's Fish Blender
Perhaps they took note on the justification for Evaristti's acquittal in
fashioning their piece.
If Evaristti's piece told us little we didn't already know about
humankind's general indifference to the suffering and mortality of
others, this piece does even less by its removing the act from the
physical context and allowing it to occur via the relative anonymity of
the internet. Fwiw, and imho, this piece is already a dead-end in terms
of it's merit to art discourse, but I wonder, how can the animal rights
community - seeing this ongoing interest in this form of sensationalism
(it's more widespread than one might think, I still recall a peer at my
art school who placed slugs in a ring of salt for his midterm. ...before
Evaristti) make an impact strong enough to render art along these lines
as "old and boring" as, say, making an impressionistic painting in 2012.
