I'm not a fan of the lowest common denominator. I don't watch Pawn Stars, listen to today's hot country, or laugh at Tyler Perry. But I'd rather watch every single episode ever filmed of Reba than sit through an entire performance of... whatever that was. I'd rather listen to Larry the Cable Guy do a 10 hour interview with Rachael Ray than hear the creator of that describe what it represents. I'd rather go McDonalds with the cast of Glee than talk to someone in that audience.

I've seen this before as well and yeah, it's mind-boggling.
If I had to guess, I'd say it's a commentary on the difficulties people with disabilities go through. I mean, if I was paralyzed from the waist down, I'd probably slam my junk into metal poles just for some stimulation, too.
Is it art? Sure, if you had any kind of emotional reaction to it. Is it good art? *shrug* they put a lot of work into... whatever it is. Would I go see it? Nah, I'll opt out.

Just about any city you go to has useless art installations by some idiot that stuck a couple of steel beams in random directions, called it "Courage" or something, and was paid a million dollars to do it. Art doesn't have to be of something, but if one is able to use a little imagination, it should at least be about something. I think some artists get too caught up in their own little mental universes and forget that others don't have access to their line of thinking or their intense imaginations and end up making something that only makes sense to them. Then they wonder why no one gets their art.

Yeah, pretty much that's the kind of shiat that got me to drop out of art school. A professor might give you a project to, say, paint a still life using just three colors; Black, Yellow, White. There was always some dick headed "performance artist" who would return to class naked, covered in honey, and the words "Black Yellow White" written all over them in Sharpie. (Oh not that exact thing, mind you, but very, very similar, I just made that up) (hmm... Maybe I should write for a grant from the NEA, bet I could get a cool $25k to do that!)

Performance "artists" are the biggest, mind bogglingly obvious scammers in the history of art. I mean staggeringly, glaringly obvious in taking people's money and producing complete shiat. "I'm going to cover myself in MEAT and walk around New York! I'm going to take pigs and write calligraphy all over them!" Oh yeah, bravo champ. I'm farking impressed. Here, let me take a piss on your head. No no no, it's not a critique. It's art.

Looked like out-of-context snippets from a dance piece about sex and physical disability.

I'm ok with the fact that I'm one of the people that doesn't "get it".
