CITY HALL IS DESPERATE FOR ENTERTAINMENT FOR THE NEW VENUES. WHAT A SLAP IN THE FACE TO THE RESIDENTS THAT THE DICTATORS ENCOURAGE THIS JUNK.

These so called artist are real fruit cakes. I love the glittery artspeak that goes along with their stupid stunts. I mean these guys could find meaning in taking a dump.

The squeezing and pushing is a symbolic self expression of the internal conflict one faces as they push through the challenges of life. The squeezing out of waste shows the desire to push aside negativity. One grunts with each push so as to reinforce their willingness to verbally express the difficulty in dealing with esoteric meanings. The passing of gas is accompanied by its own audible expression and there is a unifying effect between the human grunts and the rear ends cataclysmic vision of two mountains parted by a slowly emerging and hot earthen colored shaft. The nose diserns the foul stench of a time in the past where one consumed a meal only to have it leave one forever - never to return. But in the end our ordeal brings great relief. The lessons here are to numerous to quantify at this time. Excuse me - I have to go take a s.h.i.t.t

ORLANDO HAS A WAY OF ATTRACTING , TOLERATING , ENCOURAGING, AAND REWARDING STUPIDITY.

Maybe the name of the city should be changed to the "CITY STUPID".

I'm so glad the artistic community in Orlando doesn't have to depend on Neanderthals like the above posters to remain alive. Go back to your monster truck rallies and strip bars and have the lap dancers help you read Gun Digest ... if you're not interested in what other, intelligent people think is interesting, funny and artistic, nobody is forcing you to read the paper or the articles you find so distasteful. I think sports is idiotic, but I'm not making inane (that means stupid, word of the day for you) comments on blogs, probably because I have a job.

TWO OBSERVATIONS FOR OUR REPRESENTATIVE OF THE "artistic community in Orlando"
ONE: INANE DOES NOT MEAN STUPID
–adjective
1. lacking sense, significance, or ideas; silly: inane questions.
2. empty; void.
–noun
3. something that is empty or void, esp. the void of infinite space.

TWO : YOU ARE WAY UNDER QUALIFIED FOR WHATEVER JOB YOU DO HAVE. I SENSE A CITY GRANT RECIPIENT

Britannica Online defines art as "the use of skill and imagination in the creation of aesthetic objects, environments, or experiences that can be shared with others.

Leap Year Day by Brian Feldman, is Art, and he is not a wacko, a nut, or a conspirator against Orlando residents. The fact that the previous comments illicit such strong reactions, indicates that this surreal event made people take notice at the absurdity of life. It likely gave you something to talk about at dinner with your friends and family. After all, it's not every day that you see a guy leaping from a ladder all day, over and over again.

And if you don't f'ling care, why post a comment?

Interesting point. 9/11 inspired strong reactions too. Maybe it made us all take notice at the absurdity of life. Is 9/11 a work of art?

This dolt falling off a ladder might be entertainment but it ain't art. It's not avante-garde. It's not radical. It's not revolutionary. It's stupid. Meaningless. Lacking significance.

This isn't Christo and Jeanne-Claude's Gates in Central Park. This is a publicity stunt. Glad we have the Sentinel to cover thought-provoking stories like this.

Fat Cat: "It's stupid. Meaningless. Lacking significance."

You've made my point for me. Leap Year Day made you take notice of the absurdity of the event and of life. It's called surrealism, existentialism, take your pick.

How did you spend your extra 1440 minutes on Leap Year Day? Was your time critiquing the Orlando Sentinel and art events better spent than leaping from ladder?

Great our local "art fart" has come to tell us rubes we cant appreciate art because we are too back woods.
If you can support you own lifestyle with income from your art then more power to you.
But as soon as you take one cent from public money then you officially make yourself F.O.S.
There are a lot of great backwoods artists.

There just aren't a lot of BACKWARDS people who appreciate art.

I thought it was because we couldn't afford Cristo or that Gates guy, so Brian Feldman was the best we could get.

BECAUSE THE CITY SPONSORED IT WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS, AND IT SENDS THE MESSAGE TO THE WORLD THAT WE ARE THE "CITY STUPID".
