Dangerous Art

Dreamscape sculpture takes patrons on a nightmare ride, killing two and injuring 13.

What a horrible freak accident--and a way, way more "intense, direct experience with art" than I'd ever care to have.

By the way, anyone know how likely it is that this could happen to one of those bouncy houses that kids love? My son always begs to go into those, and while I let him, I always worry that they'll accidentally deflate or something (just one of those weird quirks: generally, I'm not a safety-paranoid mom). It never occurred to me to start obsessing as to whether the damn things could take off into the air!
