Body Art

Body art, a form of Performance art, includes the use of the artist’s body. Often shocking or disturbing in nature, these pieces of art are immediate and intimate for both the viewer and the artist, eliminating the anonymity of both participants. In such cases the art is performed in a public space, such as a gallery, or is presented through photography and video that was produced in private. Ritual and the presence of pain are often components of Body art. Vito Acconci, perhaps one of the best-known artists working within the realm of his own body as subject, introduced elements of autoeroticism into his long performances in galleries. The ultimate in pain as a subject was accomplished by Chris Burden, who crucified himself on a Volkswagen; he was also intentionally shot in the arm by an assistant and splashed with burning alcohol. Bruce Nauman has presented a more playful side to Body art, with his photographs of himself spewing water as a fountain.

Item 85485 is made for ink lettering (it is raised off the paper) and is of pretty thin plastic (not suitable for lettering with a hard lead pencil). Don't spend your money on this if you are not sure what you want. On the plus side, it has true 1/8" upper and lower case letters (not a metric substitute)

I use every day in my studio. I have tried other tapes but none compare with the 3M brand.
- Joseph in Michigan in Michigan
Not the world's greatest, but nice, especially given the price. More than adequate for practice pieces, and students. I pay more per tube for the professional quality paints I use now, than for this entire 18-piece collection, so if you need paints for practice, go for it! Not especially great for making custom colors- mixes tend to get muddy. Stays wet in tubes for years!
