An elephant made out of cardboard boxes, life-sized, behind it real elephant dung, with a little golden Buddha on top. The audience was not amused. Christian replied, better having the Buddha on top than underneath the shit.
The cardboard boxes do not function as objects of art. They act upon the individual and serve to unchain a certain particular form of behaviour, and a psychological reaction. The role of Eisenberger in this action is not limited to his intentions with the used material, but to the choice and power of the stimulus he proposes.
