Is it art, or is it a medical emergency?

London police recently responded to a report of a woman in an art gallery who appeared to be unconscious. The gallery was closed, but the non-moving woman could be seen through a window. So, "officers forced entry to the address, where they uncovered that the person was in fact a mannequin."

The mannequin was part of a sculpture by American artist Mark Jenkins depicting the time his sister had "passed out and buried her face in a plate of soup."

Nothing to see here. In my hometown of Lodi, CA there appeared in the paper one morning a story of a body found along one of the main streets that was later found to be a store mannequin smeared with auto transmission fluid. This resulted in a major emergency response and closing of the street. We had a good laugh when one of the leading police captains was quoted as saying "this could have been a catastrophe for those involved as it could have caused a major accident." The fact that it took place at two o'clock in the morning, when very few people were out and about, didn't seem to matter.
