This Aug. 2, 2014 photo shows a tortoise with an iPad mounted on its back. A group of protesters are objecting to Aspen Art Museum officials who plan to place iPads on tortoises during an art exhibition this weekend. The stunt is planned as a part of the 24-hour public opening of the new art museum on Saturday. The debut show on the rooftop sculpture garden, put together by artist Cai Guo-Qiang, features tortoises wandering around the space with iPads attached to their shells with specially designed mounts. The iPads will be showing footage of abandoned ghost-town cabins from around the valley, images that were previously recorded with the devices while they were attached to the tortoises’ shells.
