'Visceral: The Living Art Experiment' easily goes down as the first art exhibit in the history of the world to feature a book grown from living skin tissue.

Assembled by the University of Western Australia’s SymboticA art-science residency program, the 'Visceral: The Living Art Experiment features 12 works of art that all incorporate living tissue in some way. Of all the exhibit's creepily fascinating pieces, however, I have to say that the group of crickets being subjected to a lecture on insect reproduction is my favorite.
