Getting Tased

“Art”, it’s such a funny word isn’t it?

  • What is art,
  • What isn’t art
  • How can I make my own art
  • What makes my art different from someone else’s art

Well, I don’t know the answers to any of those questions, even though I took an art history class in college.  I do know that the above video is some form of “art”.  Patrick Hall managed to convince a bunch of people to pose for portraits.  Sounds pretty normal right?  Well, there was a catch here.  He had a friend of the person being photographed shock them with a taser.  Then because this is America, and we like to waste our money on things, they filmed it, from every angle, and in high-speed.

Yea, it’s great to be an American isn’t it?

Here’s an extended version of the above, but this time seeing the person doing the tasing, and the tasee.  I don’t know if those are actual words or not, but I’m too lazy to find out what they should be.

In the behind the scenes version Patrick Hall tells how he set up the shoot, and how it all evolved.  In case you’re wondering why all the people look naked, it’s because he didn’t want anything distracting the final version.
