Today I spent an hour exploring Rhizome.org. I read a couple articles, and went on a couple rabbit trails. Here's one article and trail I found interesting:
I'm not really a Shia LaBeouf fan, I'm pretty dis-interested in his career. However, I was interested to know more about why and how he was involved in performance art, it seemed pretty random.
I was interested to know more about "the piece," so I searched google with "I'm not famous anymore Shia Labeouf." This is what I found:
I learned the piece is actually titled #IAMSORRY. I wasn't surprised to read that others felt his performance piece was shockingly similar to Marina Abromovic's "The Artist Is In," that was the first thing that popped into my head when I read about #IAMSORRY.
I, however, was surprised to read that he has been accused of plagiarism before, so I looked that up:
All-in-all it was a very interesting exploration. I did not expect to post about Shia LaBeouf, but it was a fun adventure.
