The real enemy of art right here, folks!

I didn't know that being insane and being an artist were one and the same thing.

Well, usually a little "insanity" goes well with being an artist.

And like the interviewer said, it seems like any lawyer could argue against the technicality of rape in this situation.

Than being said, it's just fucking stupid.

Where do you go from here then, a “Murder Tunnel”?

No. That would be too much like repeating myself.


Well at least he's not into repeating himself

Another "can you top this" stunt masquerading as art. If he wants to make a meaningful statement about rape maybe he should go work at a rape crisis center. Like that comment says, he'll get lots of attention which is what he's looking for.

Because as an artistic gesture, it’s one of the most impactful I can think of.
Rape as a gesture? Impactful?? Interesting ways of describing it.

Quote:
I had my first breakthrough with an installation that was to be the prototype for this current one. It was called THE PUNCH-YOU-IN-THE-FACE TUNNEL.
DUDE STOLE MY IDEA!!

But seriously, um, is this a joke??

Quote:
It was the same set-up as THE RAPE TUNNEL except at the end of the tunnel I’d punch the subject in the face instead of raping him or her. The impetus was completely reactionary to the current state of art, and motivated by pure frustration.
So his "art" is an excuse to act on his frustrations too. Lovely. From now on I'm going to do whatever the hell I want and call it art.

I think this was the link you were trying to post.

The second picture looks very familiar, doesn't it?


(you might have to try the link a couple of times -- the first time I checked to see if the link worked, I got the Oops! broken link! thingie, but when I clicked it again it worked fine)
