A Marble Floor Made of . . . Salami?

I was checking out one of my favorite websites when I came across some gasp-worthy food art. Belgian contemporary artist Wim Delvoye has created a marble floor with salami. Upon first sight of the piece, I was simultaneously wowed by the Delvoye's creativity and . . . hungry.

I already consider food art, but this installation made me consider art as food. Alas, it turns out the patterns are actually made of C prints of the meat (not actual meat) so it couldn't be eaten anyway. What do you think of it? Would you want an inedible marble salami floor?

I don't really like it, I think it is ugly. Then again, I don't like salami.

That would be classic in a high end specialty butcher/deli store. I can totally envision it ... walking across a floor of salami, proscuitto and mortadella ordering a pound of antipasti. That would be super cool.

If I were ever to open a Jamon joint in Spain, I would totally get one of these floors.

This reminds me of Kate Beckinsale's prosciutto dress.
