Artist Spends Day As A Tree

"Hot off the Whitney Biennial, artist Bert Rodriguez offered an act of performance art perhaps never before seen in the Hamptons ... he had himself buried as a tree." [Plum TV]

I missed this guy, but love how his dealers have to "nurture" their artist...literally, as they were feeding, watering and wiping his face. "It just kind of felt right for me to be a tree.  I wanted to know what a tree felt like." Classic.
