As part of an art experiment that was set to blur the line between species a woman named Marion Laval-Jeantet decided to inject herself with horse plasma. She is half of the French art duo called “Art Oriente ojet” (who you can check out here). She could not inject the plasma initially but had to build up a tolerance by injecting horse immunoglobulins and glycoproteins over several months. In February of this year, she was ready for plasma that contained the entire range of foreign immunoglobulins. What happened was interesting in that her body did not reject them, but entered her blood stream and bonded with her own proteins. The results are stunning.
“the artist, during and in the weeks after the performance, experienced not only alterations in her physiological rhythm but also of her consciousness. “I had the feeling of being extra-human,” explained the artist. “I was not in my usual body. I was hyper-powerful, hyper-sensitive, hyper-nervous and very diffident. The emotionalism of an herbivore. I could not sleep. I probably felt a bit like a horse.’”
