New York artist retires animal-costume performances

Author: Higgs Raccoon

New York City artist Nate Hill has retired his performance-art pieces, several of which involved animal mascot costumes. Described as “part furry fandom, part street theater, and part creepy perv”, Hill’s spectacles included:

  • Punch Me Panda“, in which he dressed in a panda costume and chest protector, and invited passersby to take a swing at him.
  • Death Bear“, in which Hill put on a hard, black bear head and made housecalls to “take things from you that trigger painful memories and stow them away in his cave where they will remain forever, allowing you to move on with your life”.
  • Free Bouncy Rides“, in which he wore a blue dolphin costume with a sign reading “Free Bouncy Rides”, and invited people to bounce up and down on his lap.

  1. I lol’d at “Performance-art.” He’s a silly little attention whore.

  2. Performance Art? Yeah hell why not. Everyone is a attention whore in their own way. Don’t see why people get mad when someone actually attracts a lot of it, especially I’d say when it’s more then likely mixed. At least he did something other then play WOW for forty hours a week.

  3. I don’t see how that’s positive when he says it’s “part furry fandom, part street theater, and part creepy perv”, but it’s okay to be oblivious I suppose. Just keep implying I play WoW then, even though I despise that crappy game.
