Student drops Pineapple in the middle of an art exhibition as a prank and it gets mistaken for art

22-year-old Ruairi Gray, a final year student studying business information technology, left a pineapple in the middle of an art exhibition at Aberdeen's Robert Gordon University, but was surprised to see the next day that it had been put on show inside a glass case at the centre of the display. Originally meant to be a prank, Gary said:

 
'I saw an empty art display stand and decided to see how long it would stay there for or if people would believe it was art. I came in later and it had been put in a glass case - it's the funniest thing that has happened all year.'
'My honours supervisor saw it and asked an art lecturer if it was real, because he could not believe it. 
He apparently replied: "Of course it's real, you can see what they were trying to do with the top of the pineapple and the glass." I was just so shocked that it had been fully accepted as part of the art display.'
Officials at the art exhibition removed the pineapple after realising their mistake but it had already been on display for two days, fooling hundreds of students as well as lecturers who praised the person behind the work.

Hahaha! They praised the person behind the work? But I admire how white people see something otherwise ordinary as unique. I guess that's why they are the great inventors of our time.

She is damn right! Perception means feeling about something.Things connect people in different ways.
