"Better Than Out" Exhibit In New York

Banksy is a British street artist and well-known internationally His recent work is the "Better Than Out" exhibit that happens in the streets of New York. A delivery truck was used that carried 60 stuff animals like lambs, pigs, chicken, and cow and their heads in the wooden slats. The animals can also be heard squealing and banging their heads. 

"This is a piece of sculpture art, and I know what you're thinking, 'Isn't it a bit subtle?' Here, the artist Banksy is making some sort of comment on the causal cruelty of the food industry. Or perhaps something vague and pretentious about the loss of childhood innocence. The truck contains over 60 cuddly soft toys on the road to a swift death. However, in order to bring them to life, four professional puppeteers are required, strapped into bucket seats, dressed entirely in black lycra, pulling on an array of levers with each limb and given only one toilet break a day - proving that the only sentient beings held in lower esteem than livestock are mime artists", says the Banksy's audio guide.
