Art has always been subjective, but the newest exhibit at "the subversive adult Disneyland" in Sydney, Australia, is essentially an automated poop machine:

It was built by Belgian artist Wim Delvoye to mimic the actions of the human digestive system. A series of glass receptacles hang in a row with the machine being "fed" twice a day on one end. The food is ground up "naturally," the way it is in the human body, and the device produces feces on the clock at 2 p.m. at the other end.

Though the motto at the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) is "to shock, offend, inform and entertain," NBC reports that as far as the poop machine is concerned, "not many visitors can take it." One guest said the exhibit's byproduct is an "overwhelming assault on the senses."
