Dear Tommy and All

I will be interested to see the reaction of listees to this article. A few years ago I posted a small "flyer" for the work of an artist who had taken a piece of Campo, made a mould of it, melted the meteorite then cast it in the mould she had made earlier and put it on display in an exhibition of her work. This piece of news generated a great deal of, mainly negative, comment on the list. Can someone point out to me how this use of a meteorite, to make a weapon, is different (for better or worse) to the artwork my friend created?
