Underneath the Bitumen

Down in Tasmania, 73-year-old Australian artist Mike Parr is spending three days in a steel box that's been buried beneath a busy road. As traffic passes overhead, he'll spend his time "meditating, drawing, fasting and reading Robert Hughes’s The Fatal Shore." Apparently he hopes that his time underground will draw attention to "20th-century totalitarian violence in all its forms.”

But only three days? That's a walk in the park compared to the exploits of "Country" Bill White who spent 140 days underground.

I would hope that the sanitary facilities are first rate.
