Guy Drinks His Own Blood

Submitted by: WellWho 7 years ago in Weird

It"s an artistic performance against society issues. So, I-A-B, is this really art?

If you ever need some art in your life, just punch this guy in the nose and enjoy your masterpiece.

I drink my own blood sometimes, I get a cut on my finger and sometimes I suck on it because I don`t have a towel or a tissue, so according to this then me doing that is art; I should quit my job and get paid to do it.

"i was just amazed that "shakey" could hit the IV."

She didn`t, she started on the left and had to move onto the right.

Remember that time when art was about talent? Those were the days....

I`m in the library on a laptop and it appears that I`m studying while actually surfing IAB. I`m making an artistic statement about how people are distracted from their studies by websites that offer cheap entertainment. This totally goes against society`s norms of being constantly productive. Watching me goof off online is a very powerful piece of performance art. The other students don`t seem to be able to appreciate it, though.

@roariamadino: The essence of survival is to consume what you need to live and leave the rest. What the United States does is madness, and not in anyway conducive to long-term survival in any way.

Blood drats up your stomach, like when people drink the blood from nosebleeds they get so sick, this guy probably puked up his entire stomach.

Maybe if I knew exactly what he was saying...not just `against society issues`, but what issues and what his problem with them were, then it would make more sense. As it stands, I`d have to say it`s just some attention-grabbing ploy.

You are indeed keeping the blood if you are drinking it but sadly it is going into your stomach which is not your blood stream so nice try with that lol.

I don`t get it either. What "social issues"?
Is it possible to drink so much of your own blood that you pass out/die? I mean, technically, you`re keeping it in you...

The line between art and non-art lies in the "artist`s statement". An "artist`s statement" is a message - usually a a small piece of paper next to the artwork - which explains the piece.

If the piece can stand alone without the statement, it is art. If the piece is meaningless without the statement, it is not art.

Think about it - can you fully appreciate and understand a painting by Michelangelo without someone explaining it to you? Of course! Michelangelo knew how to convey messages, emotions, ideas in his art. That is why his works have withstood the test of time.

Can you fully appreciate and understand a guy drinking blood without him telling you it is to critique society? Of course not!! Without his message, it is just a guy trolling for attention. That is not art.

really beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. so is this art on my definition, no. but to others it very well could be as symbolic as the Sistine chapel. really i cant comment because art is fluid. it comes in all shapes sizes and colors. so this isn`t a group discussion. its a personal question, do you find this to be artistic.

no this isnt art, people have been doing it for thousands of years, some people even wear it as corpse paint, yet they dont see it as art, anything that is something people have been doing as part of there everyday lives is not art

@ princess
I wasn`t speaking in general as to the blood loss. He`s only drinking his own blood, so he should pass out before he consumed enough to make him throw up. Then he would likely either drown in his own blood, or die of blood loss, since most people would probably somehow assume it was part of the `show` and so, not help him...

When I was younger, I used to think that you could drink your own blood and it would go back into your circulatory system.

@ delos

that 2 gallons of blood doesnt have to be taken from only one person. sixteen people could each give an eighth of a gallon of blood, or some not deadly amount.

He could have just been biting down on the tube.. so not that much blood flow came through. I mean... that`s what I would do. lol

He obviously had some in his mouth as to let it trickle down his chin for effect though.

@ iplaymusic

A) Who found out this number? and with enough `tests` to prove its a common limit?

B) what -can- you drink more than two gallons of in a short time without some sort of adverse affects? Or am I imagining a greater quantity than two gallons?

C) Wouldn`t removing just part of that from anyone be hazardous?

Looks like it didn`t work with his right hand. Drunk shaky dude that was putting a needle in is to blame I guess.

I guess it`s technically art, in the sense that I can crap on a plate, put it in a gallery, claim it`s art, and it is.

But good/worthwhile art? Not even close.

No, it is not art. Maybe it is actually, the art of `being so f*cking stupid you would think that doing something as moronic as that to express yourself is a good idea`.
Fool!

I think it`s best to just ignore people like this. If people keep giving them attention, they`ll keep pushing the envelope further and further until you get someone vomiting on a canvas and calling it art. OH WAIT THAT ALREADY HAPPENED!!! Fire and re-education. It`s the only way.

There is no real danger in drinking your own blood, aside from, you know... bloodloss.

I don`t see how this will combat society issues either, but good for him.
