Artist Organizes Experimental Waterboarding Event

NYC artist, Steve Powers is calling 50 lawyers to participate in a waterboarding experience he dubs an “experimental art event.”

The event will be held this month in NYC, and will exclusively feature lawyers as participants given their ability to relate an experience in impartial terms. In undertaking this project, Powers seeks to blur the lines that define fun, fright, and torture as understood in the context of an amusement park ride (the event will likely be held at Coney Island). Sounds to me like this guy might have a little bit of masochist in him, huh?
