Santiago started this particular class by telling us that we would see some crazy shit today. He wasn't joking. We looked at Orlan, a performance artist from France. Her performances were radical and extremely odd. Orlan's legacy was made on a surgery table and with plastic surgery. She had a few plastic surgeries done. That alone isnt that strange but she made it art. She had cameras in the surgery that let viewers watch live. She also read from a book and was dressed in unusually outfits. The first thing that came to mind after seeing her performances was that she is crazy, and committed to her ideas.
