Arteest BS taken to a whole new level

Some French group called Art Orienté objet which explores trans-species relationships cooked up a project where they injected one of their members, Marion Laval Jeantet, with some sort of horse blood serum. You can read about it at the post Woman Becomes Human-Horse Hybrid for the Sake of Art at Oddity Central.

She prepared herself for this by injecting herself with small doses of the serum to build up her tolerance for it, until she could finally take a full dose of "horse plasma containing the full spectrum of foreign immunoglobulins", whatever the heck that's supposed to mean.

Anyhoo... this, according to the Art Orienté objet folks, caused her horse and human blood to be bonded which turned her into a human-horse hybrid, or some such thing. Marion Laval Jeantet said of her experience, "I had the feeling of being extra-human. I was not in my usual body. I was hyper-powerful, hyper-sensitive, hyper-nervous and very diffident. The emotionalism of an herbivore. I could not sleep. I probably felt a bit like a horse."

Um... OK. Sounds reasonable to me.
