for more about Stelarc
H/T to John Rodrigues

Stelarc:” STRETCHED BETWEEN WHAT IT NEVER WAS AND WHAT IT COULD NEVER BECOME; SUSPENDED BETWEEN THE INWARD PULL OF GRAVITY AND THE OUTWARD THRUST OF INFORMATION, THE BODY RETURNS TO THE TREE, ANXIOUS AND VULNERABLE AFFIRMING ITS PRIMAL ORIGINS, AMPLIFYING ITS OBSLESCENCE. TERMINAL TRAJECTORY IS PLOTTED, AN ELEGANT EXIT IS ASSURED. THE BEGINNING IS RE-ENACTED, THE END IS PROCLAIMED. THE BREEZE IS BLOWING OVER AERODYNAMIC STRETCHED SKIN, THE BODY IS ATTAINING PLANETARY ESCAPE VELOCITY. THE BRAIN IS BURSTING FROM ITS GENETIC CONFINEMENT, HOVERING BETWEEN GRAVITY AND FANTASY, INTUITIVELY.

“Prepared Tree Suspension: Event for Obsolete Body No. 6”, Black Mountain, Canberra 1982.
