performance art

Performance art has been on my mind ever since I recently read a very long and beautiful article on Marina Abramovic who is currently having a major retrospective at MoMA. Abramovic's work tends to be endurance based. Some of it is not easy to look at since it involves physical pain. Since issues of performance often come into discussion within digital art, I think that this is entirely relevant. I'm not interested in doing things that harm myself or others but in areas of digital performance their is this ambiguity that could be exploited.
