So from what i researched this piece is called, Fountain, and was created by Marcel Duchamp in 1917. In simpler terms its a urinal. This may not be considered by some to be art but in my opinion i guess it could be considered art. I mean it had to be designed and created with some type of vision. Or maybe its was produced to be more efficient and pleasing to the eye? People are into a lot of weird things, so maybe there is a community that genuinely appropriates a good urinal.
