Old hat, Mary. The first individual to use this unusual medium was
Piero Manzoni, and Italian proto-Conceptual artist who produced an
edition (90 tin cans) of what he titled *Artist's Shit* --it was just
that--in 1960. >>

What about Abject art? Seems like there are very many examples of artists
using their body excrement, parts and fluids to create art. Carolee
Schneemann, Kiki Smith, Orlan to name a few...

I think the human body, both inside and out, interest many. As to explaining
to my class about feces painting..umm..good question!
