Taxidermy Animal Drones by Bart Jansen

{17 Comments}

There are many weird things on the internet, but a dead cat turned into a remote-control flying helicopter may be the strangest yet. The cat helicopter was conceived by Dutch artist (or so he likes to call himself) Bart Jansen. The first drone he created was Jansen’s own cat that was killed by a car in 2012, so Jansen “decided to pay tribute to his lost life by giving him a new one. An electronic one. It would allow him to continue partaking in his favorite activity: bird stalking.”

After the dead cat drone (cat copter), Bart Jensen proceeded to create an ostrich copter, “I thought it was really funny to make fly a bird that can’t fly,” he told people who tried to understand WHY. Geez, there’s that European humour for you.

Obviously, the next logic step was to create flying dead rat:

Finally, Bart Jansen turned a taxidermy shark into a SharkJet…

    Odd. But ever so slightly entertaining.

    Tasteless. That’s not art but probably some kind of fetish.

  3. Smakeloos, en absoluut onnodig. Aanvankelijk dacht ik dat het weer een van fatsoen ontdane amerikaan was, (daar zijn er genoeg van hier) maar was verbaasd te zien toe het een Nederlander bleek. Ik was er altijd van overtuigd dat we daar wat verder ge-evolueerd waren. Zat ik er mooi naast.

    It’s like a really bad horror movie. I may have Nightmares from this….

    Sick and wrong. Disrespecting dead bodies is wrong, even with animals.
    🤢🤮

    Translation of Erik’s comment above, for those of us who don’t read or speak Dutch:

    “Distasteful, and absolutely unnecessary. At first I thought it was another American stripped of decency (there are plenty of those around here) but was surprised to see that it turned out to be a Dutchman. I was always convinced that we were a bit more evolved over there. Well, I was pretty wrong.”

      So there you go…not always American. Now get back on your bike and carry on.

  8. Is this really any worse than allowing an animal’s body to decay on the side of the road, or be tossed into a landfill?

    How is this a more disrespectful use of the empty vessels left behind when the animal’s or bird’s energy has been released from it by death, than is turning the animal’s hide into clothing or shoes, or making furniture dusters, clothing or hat decorations, and pillows from their feathers?

    It’s not something I’d seek out for one of my pets, but if this is the means by which one wishes to preserve the memory of their pet, it is not for me to condemn them and it hurts no one.

    This is even more low class than taxidermy. It’s…It’s…Uber-dermy… 🤣🤣🤣

  12. Bart Jansen needs a hammer taken to his face.
