Art has no limits. It can go through the scale of amazing to absurd, depending on the viewer.
Two students from Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen decided to test these limits by ‘trolling’ an art exhibit. Ruairi Gray and Lloyd Jack intentionally left an ordinary pineapple in an empty white plinth in the middle of an art exhibition.
While their only intention was to fool some people into thinking that it is one of the art pieces, they got a big surprise when they returned a few days later. The pineapple is inside a glass case!
Lloyd posted the amusing turn of event in Twitter.
So last week we placed a pineapple next to an art display and come in today and RGU have moved it into a glass display case. Amazing. pic.twitter.com/sMzTUlapDQ

Curators have mistaken the pineapple as one of the art pieces.
When the organizers were asked regarding the pineapple, they had no clue on how the pineapple became part of the exhibit. According to the organizer Natalie Kerr, “It’s a bit of a mystery – the glass is pretty heavy and would need two or three people to move it, we have no idea who did it. But it’s still there now, we decided to keep it because it’s keeping with the playful spirit of this commission.“
