The line between human and animal was greatly blurred recently in 'May the Horse Live in Me.' 'May the Horse Live in Me' was a live art performance held in Luxembourg in which French artist Marion Laval-Jeantet of Art Orienté objet injected herself with horse blood plasma.
Normally crossing human blood with animal blood is a recipe for death, but Laval-Jeantet had been preparing herself for months with injections containing horse immunoglobulins. After her injection, the artist donned a pair of horse stilts and led a horse communication ritual with a black horse. Laval-Jeantet's blood was then drawn and freeze-dried so that it could be examined at a later date. With regards to the physical effects of the transfusion, the artist said, "I was not in my usual body. I was hyper-powerful, hyper-sensitive, hyper-nervous and very diffident. The emotionalism of an herbivore." If you are interested in seeing the performance you can watch a video of it here.
