I'd call it a stupid attention-whoring stunt.

The same thing could have been accomplished with a camera and a strap around his .. Oh, except it wouldn't have been as newsworthy.

I second that. As an art student, I found this to be an idiotic idea and a cheap stunt. Unless he was trying to wire the camera to his brain so he could see behind himself, there was no need to implant it on the back of his ..

i would say implanting a camera in the back of your . is the weirdest thing i have heard a artist do


You haven't heard much about radical art then. A good place to start would be with Chris Burden, famous for such extreme performance pieces as "Trans-fixed" where he crucified himself to a Volkswagen Beetle and "Shoot" where he had an assistant shoot him.

For another look at bizzare, disgusting art from the 1960s, check out Viennese Actionism. Basically anything that was off-limits or taboo in the everyday was fair game for Vienna Actionists. Nudity, blood, guts, violent and sexual imagery, etc.

I'm not saying I'm a fan of this type of art. On the contrary, I struggle with understanding it. I don't like to limit artists, but I question the creativity and motive of an artist that creates something that is going to universally shock or disgust people. There is always going to be some kind of creative thought process, but it just feels like a cheap way of drawing attention to yourself.

this is interesting because when I think about it I think about having a bionic eye, or really anything bionic for that matter. Would the body reject a bionic eye? People get prosthetic eyes, limbs, pins inside their bones, metal plates in their .s... so why would the body reject this? It's probably just not been done right.
