This Spider Is Actually A Bodypainted Contortionist

July 11, 2014


I knew instantly it wasn't a spider though because spiders have twelve legs and this one only has four. "GW? Spiders only have eight legs." Then what the f*** did I just smash with a rolled up newspaper?! I'd look at the carcass in the trash but REAL TALK: I ordered Chinese take-out last weekend and the leftovers have been marinating in the trashcan ever since. You can smell it from the ELEVATOR of my apartment building, I don't think it's a good idea to spend any amount of time hovering directly over the trash trying to identify a dead bug. Besides, you SURE spiders don't have twelve legs? "Just how many do you think twelve is?" *holding up fingers* "That's six." It did kind of look like an ant now that I think about it.

Keep going for a video with a BONUS contortionist as a seahorse.

Thanks to Laura, who agrees getting bodypainted and contorting yourself like a spider is a great way for a giant to mistake you for one and get stepped on.

  • Since there is an ongoing Art Debate in this forum, i would like to cite wikipedia:
    Until the 17th century, art referred to any skill or mastery and was not differentiated from crafts or sciences.
    In modern usage after the 17th century, where aesthetic considerations
    are paramount, the fine arts are separated and distinguished from
    acquired skills in general, such as the decorative or applied arts.

    So- is this decorative and well crafted or is this art with a story to tell?

    "Making judgments of value requires a basis for criticism. At the
    simplest level, a way to determine whether the impact of the object on
    the senses meets the criteria to be considered art is whether it
    is perceived to be attractive or repulsive. Though perception is always
    colored by experience, and is necessarily subjective, it is commonly
    understood that what is not somehow aesthetically satisfying cannot be
    art. However, "good" art is not always or even regularly aesthetically
    appealing to a majority of viewers. In other words, an artist's prime
    motivation need not be the pursuit of the aesthetic. Also, art often
    depicts terrible images made for social, moral, or thought-provoking

  • btw, certain computergames or elements of them are art to me.

  • "system shock", for example

  • zin

    Shadow of the Colossus tells a great story in an amazing setting.
    Zone of the Enders 2 has a unique graphics style & coupled with great action, I consider it art.
    And I loved doing CRAYZEE combos in Devil May Cry 3.
    To be honest, any game that can suck me in & make me forget I have an irl life I consider art.

  • Soc has incredible artwork and seems immersive

  • I digged jedi academy or the undying by clive barker or the blade runner point and click adventure

  • But i wouldnt call them Art, there is a rough kafkaesque pure Schizophrenia about System shock that makes it unique, even compared to deus ex.

    I've never NOPE'd at a spider before
