“There’s a guy dressed like an alien playing guitar with a stuffed goat over on the stairs at Union Square, and there’s a Rottweiler at the bottom of the stairs who just doesn’t know what to make of him,” my husband laughed, as we walked around San Francisco the other day.
So I got closer, and yes indeed, there he was, an alien with a metallic mask and hands, a guitar and a stuffed goat.
The dog looked incredulous.
“Wonder what Riley would do with this,” I mused to my husband.
“I know exactly what he’d do with it,” he responded. We drew closer to Union Square.
I took a closer look.
I love performance art and this had to be the most interesting I’d seen in San Francisco. Calling it “weird” isn’t an exaggeration–I’m not sure there’s another description. It was weird. But it was provocative, in that it provoked thought. It was clever. It made us laugh. We wanted to draw closer.
Yes, it was good performance art. What about you? What’s the wildest performance art you’ve seen?
