Oh, art! My day would certainly be much more dreary without performance art like this: In 2005, Marlene Haring donned a Chewbacca-worthy suit of hair and went crawling around Vienna's "Second District" (the city's red light district), much to the delight of passer-bys:
The long-blond-haired creature sleeping on the pavement at the street-corner rendezvous outside the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts did not greet the more-or-less informed audience, but set off at surprising speed on all fours into the park. The assorted audience followed as the creature made its way through the greenery towards the Prater (Vienna’s permanent fun-fair), past Autodrome, Space Shot, Ghost Train and Casino Admiral, emerging on Austellungsstrasse (Exhibition Road) and crossing into the neighbourhood known as the Stuwerviertel, where Marlene Haring lives.
Then it started to get weird: http://www.vargas.org.uk/artists/marlene_haring/mh_hairy/haarig_1.html
