"Blast" from the past: man has himself shot in the arm as performance art

This display of "performance art" comes from a man by the name of Chris Burden, in 1971. He stands still as his friend across from him raises a 22 rifle to shoot him in the arm. He draws the viewer's attention to the audio's limited dialog, which we guess is supposed to have some kind of importance. "Do you know where you're going to stand, Bruce?" and "Are you ready?" are some of the brilliant lines you can expect to hear.


We call this one: "I wish people liked me...maybe if I did something crazy I'd earn respect"
