Creativity Might Be Overrated

The Chronicle of Higher Education's Brainstorm blog has an interesting post from last month on provocative art projects that have been done over the years. Some lowlights:

Shooting a dog as a performance piece: Tom Otterness (1980s)
Living in a locker for 5 days: Chris Burden (1960s)
Having yourself shot: Chris Burden (1970s)
Having yourself crucified on a Volkswagen beetle: Chris Burden (1970s)
...and those are some of the tamer ones.

I think I'll have my kids stick with finger painting.
