[art project] Online voters electrocute performance artist

November 10, 2010

Art Project of the Day: Controversial Russian artist Oleg Mavromati, who fled to Bulgaria to escape a criminal investigation for filming himself being mock-crucified near a cultural institute (he was charged with “inciting religious animosity”), is letting the Internet decide his fate by asking viewers of his livestream to vote “innocent” or “guilty.” 100 “guilty” votes and he will voluntarily shock himself with a homemade electrocution machine capable of doing quite a bit of damage.
