I'm Not Quite Dead

Decades ago, long before reality tellevision, there was "play" that consisted of a real family living their life on a theatre stage. Eating, reading, sleeping etc. The audience could come and go at anytime 24/7. Interesting, but I don't think it was a success.

Installations by Gregor Schneider
Now, if a venue can be found, German artist Gregor Schneider will use a dying person as a performance piece. Yes, a volunteer will die for Schneider's art.

Some people might think this is sick or exploitive. I have no problem with it. Dying is the final part of life. I'm not afraid of that.
