I stumbled across their website the other day and have been sort of obsessing over it ever since… It’s a little hard to explain other than they make my feel really squirmy about the 21st century! You should definitely explore their site, it’s stoopid in all the right ways.

I saw his video Operation Invert a little while back and was totally blown away, this one might not give you the best idea of his work, but it’s pretty amazing in other respects…
this video is interesting as well…
I don’t know why, but I’ve been a little bit obsessed with her performance art lately… well I do know why, it’s because she’s major, in a major way! But I’m not sure why I’m obsessing over her right now… I think it’s because I read an article about Marina Abromović, who recently curated a performance art festival mainly of re-performance or utilizing older performance pieces as scores that can repeated again and again, like a symphony rather than just as a fleeting moment. I think this is a fantastic idea, and am physically and mentally prepared to start a performance art cover band, whenever I can get a collective together!
Nevertheless, for those who don’t [scoff] know Carolee Schneeman, she’s pretty much the quintessential 70′s feminist performance artist, actually, probably the quintessential performance artist period! Here’s a picture of her performing one of her most famous pieces Interior Scroll (and one of the two performances was performed in Colorado, interestingly enough!)…
Here’s a link to watch a couple of her other performance pieces.
