How to Live Inside A Bear and Other Curiosities

Live inside a bear

Whether a stunt or a gimmick or to prove some type of weird point, French artist Abraham Poincheval has our attention. In his project Inside the Skin of the Bear, the artist literally crawled inside the belly of a taxidermied bear and made a mini living space for himself. He lived in the bear for a full two weeks, as a test of his physical endurance, but also some bizarre type of reverse hibernation-esque act. The whole experience was broadcast 24/7 via live stream. Hey, don’t say art doesn’t push boundaries, we love weird and fascinating stuff like this. Via UrDesign:
