Exploding Banana Head Performance Art
For his Think Globally, Act Locally performance video, Brooklyn-based artist William Lamson put on a mask embedded with firecracker-stuffed bananas and filmed himself lighting each fuse, causing the bananas to explode. What's the message? ArtSlant says, "The banana, a classic agent for slapstick pratfalls, has also now come to represent the pitfalls of corporate farming practices." I say, "Bananas are evil and must be destroyed." I'm probably wrong.
