La Biennale di Venezia

What is this? It's art, of course! Some things look a little more like science projects.
"A man jogs on top of an overturned armoured tank in an installation by artists Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla (U.S.A.) during the 54th International Art Exhibition in Venice on June 2, 2011."
Interesting tidbit: These two artists live in Puerto Rico. She went to the U. of Richmond (VA).
I wonder if the man on the tank had an understudy, just in case he got tired of jogging.
I went to the Venice Biennial once a long time ago. I think it was Jasper Johns' year when he was awarded the grand prize for painting. There were only 40 countries represented then.
