Chinese Artist Lives on a Scale to Lose Weight in Public

Quote:
Chinese artist Wang Jun is going to be spending a whole month at the Yitel and Yi Hotel in Beijing. Not in any of the luxury rooms, but as a display piece in an art project called “Keep Fit Deal – 15”. He’s going to be spending the whole time on an electronic weighing scale, not even leaving to eat, drink or use the restroom. A live video stream will be tracking his every move, broadcasting it online. Wondering why in the world he would do such a thing? Well, I found it kind of confusing myself, but it appears that he’s trying to accomplish several things at once. The most important, of course, being weight loss.

Wang Jun says he’s 15 jin (that’s about 7.5kg) overweight and he’d like to lose it all in the public eye. So people can always see on the scale how much he’s lost (or gained). Well, the lack of movement alone will make it hard for him to lose weight, but maybe he’s also planning to do some exercise right on the scale. Apart from shedding the extra pounds, he is also interested in using his body as a media outlet. He wants to experience the physical and psychological limits of connecting with a public space. Jun calls his experiment ‘artistic’. Now, that just makes me laugh, how people can call sitting put for a whole month, art. But according to Jun, his project is of an ascetic nature, intended to highlight the social realities of greed and pleasure-seeking, while criticizing the craze in society for the ‘so called-popular’ things.
Wang Jun plans to end his little project only after he loses the 15 extra jin, which might take a while. It might seem stupid, but the man really is testing his physical and psychological limits by just sitting on a scale while broadcasting the whole experience. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to discover the web address where you can stare at the artist doing absolutely nothing, 24/7. It’s ok, you don’t have to thank us for not wasting your time.

Re: Chinese Artist Lives on a Scale to Lose Weight in Public

eventually I'd just say fuck it.


I once went on a "trip" to India. The counter-intel guy told me to go to my bathroom and casually turn the water on as hot as it will go.

Then he told me that if a part didn't fog up there was a good chance there was a camera behind it. Well, it happened. There was a square spot that didn't fog up.


So you know what I did?

I whipped out my dick and beat off. Never once breaking eye contact with the spot on the mirror that didn't fog up.
