Lend Me Your Ear....

This is "Bio" art or "Wet" art, which is using biology to create art.

The pic is of performance artist Stelios Arcadious, who searched for 10 years before finding a surgeon who would do the surgery. The ear was grown in a lab and then surgically grafted to his arm. He now wants to have a microphone inserted in the ear and a transmitter placed in his actual ear. Guess everybody had different dreams and goals in life; this certainly isn't mine.
