Lady Gaga's Prison GF Says Kissing Her Was 'Electric' - lady gaga - Gawker:
For my most recent performance "Tiresius" I stood in a plexi podium, and fit my body inside a classical Greek male torso carved from ice, which I melted over a 5 hour period with the heat from my body. Tiresius, the Greek mythological character, makes frequent appearances in the arts – from Dante's Inferno to T.S. Eliot's The Wasteland, he is a crucial but almost always marginal figure straddling time, gender, life and death. Here I cast the story of Tiresius as one of endurance and transformation, in which masculinity both freezes the body, and melts away.
