Man grows ear on arm

Australian artist Stelarc is growing an ear on his arm. It's been a project of his years in the making. He first got the idea back in 1996, and it took a while to find doctors willing to do the work. But the ear is pretty well formed now. His final goal is to insert a microphone into his arm ear, and then connect the microphone to the internet, so that people around the world can hear through his arm ear.

He says, "People's reactions range from bemusement to bewilderment to curiosity, but you don't really expect people to understand the art component of all of this."

Alexander D’Agostino at Labbodies



Be sure to check out the "performance" around 23:00, when ballet slippers and a Skeletor mask come into play.

If you can last--or fast-forward--to the 3.5 -minute mark, this performance art piece really takes off, with the "artist" blowing some fluff into the air.

Plans are in motion to produce the first.XXX movie filmed in space.
There is a Indiegogo funding campaign for the project, just in case anyone wants to participate (financially only of course) in the effort.

Marjani Forte



Do you think this person ever asks herself, "Why has my video achieved only 68 hits in three years?"

This new one below almost doubled that count in just two years though!



If you get to NYC quickly, you can catch her latest show.

As spectators gathered there on Wednesday, a woman in a wool coat and sneakers came gesticulating toward us, the courthouse as her backdrop. A vagrant evangelical, she preached about “His glory” and shouted at confused pedestrians — a convincing display of what New Yorkers habitually dismiss as “crazy.” Only her gauzy white veil, metallic body paint and a hovering cameraman gave her away as a performer.



Guillermo Gómez-Peña





If only I could make it out to Santa Rosa, CA, to see Guillermo Gómez-Peña in his upcoming performance. I am sure my consciousness would be raised to Olympian levels.

The Living Theatre, Deceased





With the death this month of Judith Malina, the world will be forever deprived of "happenings" like the one in the first clip, where, I regret, Ms. Malina does not appear until the final few seconds.
