Monday Mood-Ups: Big Dick
What is one of the best form of entertainment? I say observing people’s reactions to something unexpected or shocking and I am pretty sure artist David Livingston will agree with me.
Walking through various neighborhoods in New York City, David has wears a 6′ long flaccid felt penis that he sewed and stuffed with sofa upholstery. When asked about his motivation, he said the follow: “I find its childish humor appealing, and I am fascinated by my sudden transformation from anonymous pedestrian to attention-grabbing street performer. I don’t have to say a word, and it affects people in a whole host of ways. Most people either laugh or look away awkwardly. Some people are curious and want to start a conversation. Some people respond with anger. For me, the performance is about overcoming fear, but I like that it means something different to everyone who encounters me.” So there ya go folks, all effort just to get a little bit of reaction, as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone.
