    Marina Abramovic is currently doing an AmA on reddit. I've always waffled between a dislike of performance art and yet a fondness for what she does, but in any case, I like what I've been reading there. Plus it's kind of interesting to see her intelligent fans on Reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1jctbp/i_am_performance_artist_marina_abramovic_ask_me/

    Multi Perspective Shadow Sculptures by John V. Muntean:



    Wooden Mirror by Daniel Rozin.



    A motorcycle made of forks, spoons and knives, that only exists as a shadow. By Shigeo Fukuda.
