  3. I've always been fascinated by artists such as the one you've featured. I would be terrible at it. After 10 minutes, I'd probably want to go get a hamburger or something. : / But I digress...Nice choice for today!

  4. This is fascinating. I've heard artist experimenting with this but I've never get to actually see one. Hopefully I will be able to meet one living art one day so that I can truly appreciate it.

  20. that is so amazing. they look so real!

    I did some "freeze modelling" when I was younger. Standing still for hours on a box in a store while people try to poke you and make you laugh.
    the clothes were great, but people.....not awesome.

  24. I lived in Dublin, Ireland for a while many years back and there were quite a few living art performers there. It was always a delight to stop amongst the hustle and bustle of the busy city streets and admire their craft for a spell.
