Martin White from the United Kingdom will soon create an installation called “Spilt Milk”. The dairy hygiene inspector is pouring 5,000 liters or 8,800 pints into a dish and will wait for it to go off.
I’m not sure if it’s art, or even if it’s rational, but his message behind the work is that dairy farming is in decline.
Milk art brings a little culture to the farm
“I wanted to show how even a wholesome food is transformed into toxins over time. This work is also a comment on the pressures on dairy farming, which is becoming less and less viable. As [this] farm was once a dairy farm, there is a certain irony in bringing milk here, only for it to decay.”
Mr White will pour thousands of pints of the white stuff into a specially constructed 30 foot petri dish on Thursday – and wait for it to go off. At least a four-inch crust is expected. The artwork will remain on display until it becomes so rotten and smelly that it will have to be removed and processed at a biogas facility.” Telegraph
