Death row inmate in Texas donates his body for art

If the final appeal is denied and his execution proceeds, Gene Hathorn on death row in Texas has agreed to donate his remains to artist Marco Evaristti. The artist intends to turn Hathorn's body into an art display where viewers of the installation will be able to "feed goldfish with it." 

Evaristti is know for producing outrageous art. In 2007 at a dinner party, he served meatballs partially created with fat from his own liposuction operation. Gross! How very Fight Club of him.
