“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her. She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted. Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly. “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.” This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.” This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain that no one reading this believes the people around him/her are capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”

Imagine 20 or 30 years from now and all of your favorite bands have since broken up or decided to call it quits. You’ve just dropped your kids off at school. You then turn on the radio to some classic rock station. A song begins to play, you know this opening from somewhere, and then
"when I was… a young boy…"
remember that one time when Franks guitar string broke so he just sat on the stage pouting?
This was the cutest moment in history
There are a lot of comments on this post about how ‘if he was a good guitar player he would still be able to play’
so let me show you what happens right after that last gif
Then he backflips away from your ignorance
