Is it art?

 Scottish artist Jessica Harrison is one unusual woman judging by her artwork
Some of her works are art - as in hang on the wall or display on the shelves (but I think they come with an "if you dare" warning)
Others are more "functional" - like the false eyelashes made from the legs of dead flies.

Is it art if you pull the legs off flies and stick them on to someone's eyes?  Is it functional?  
Is there a fine line between artistic and psychotic?

You can see some of her works on her website 
the "Breaking" series are zombie like porcelain ornaments
