Guy locks himself up for one year, throws away key
Way back in 1978 - 79, a Taiwanese-born performance artist named Tehching Hsieh locked himself up and lived in almost solitary confinement for an entire year, all in the name of art. And then he did it four more times.
The Museum of Modern Art has dedicated a small exhibition to document year one of the "Cage Piece" performed by Hsieh.
Pictured below: Tehching Hsieh on days 1 and 365. I think I know who will be showcased as our modern day performance artist!
