Performance art is incomparable and almost always unconventional. Unpredictable and uncontrollable, much of the work itself is dependent on the reactions (or non-reactions) of its audience.

From human hamsters to breathing sculptures to safety pin body art, this collection of performance art pieces will blow you away.

Implications - Performance artists constantly push societal bounds in their work to make a subversive statement on humanity, the economy and other pressing cultural issues. These publicly shown works show the lengths to which performance artists go to express their viewpoints, shock viewers and attain viral fame in the blogosphere. Companies can take advantage of this phenomenon by creating publicity stunts that titillate and surprise the public.
