Fries and Ketchup

February 9, 2016: Texas State University student Monika Rostvold lay on an outdoor table, wearing only a bra and underwear, then covered herself in Chick-fil-A fries and ketchup. She did this, she explained, to draw attention to the negative effects of dating and hooking up.

She elaborated that the culture of hooking up is "very satisfying, but is it healthy? Is it really what we want? That’s what I’m asking the audience. I know fast food and the body is hard to connect, but to me it just made sense."

I'd like to know why she chose Chick-fil-A fries.

Ri Molnar - Hell Is Real at Transmodern Labbodies

Caution: bare bazooms. But it is art. And after viewing, you will agree that "Hell is real."

Eliza Bent

Luckily for us all, Eliza Bent, having exhausted the audiences of Austin, has found new comrades and a new home in New York City for her "art."

That her new piece is titled "Toilet Fire" leaves us eager to drop everything and attend!

How can we ever honestly tell a young child again that it is wrong to play inside plastic bags?

Spun on robotic arm

When we last met performance artist Stelarc, he was growing an ear on his arm. Now he's back with a new piece, titled "Propel," in which he's spun around by a giant robotic arm. He says that this demonstrates "an intimate interaction between the human body and a machine." He goes on:

"The human is responsible for programming the robot, but it's that connection between the body and machine that generates an artistic system. The body is propelled in different trajectories. Sometimes my body is totally upside down, sometimes it's rotating on its axes and sometimes it's spun around."

You can check out a video of him being spun at
