The Christmas Tree Of Our Nightmares

When I was little I used to go swimming in a freshwater lake near my parents’ house. Until one day I waded in and saw a dull white eel swimming near the perimeter of the shoreline and was traumatized. I refused to ever go in the lake again. So you can imagine how absolutely thrilled I was to see artist Kazuhiko Minawa’s eel-powered Christmas tree. Says Minawa, “If we could gather up all the electric eels from around the world, we would be able to light up an unimaginably large Christmas tree.” Sure, I’ll get right on that. [BoingBoing]
