this is a piece i saw at the nam june paik art center a couple of weeks ago which stuck in my mind... it is a performance at the north axe of the world (geographic north pole) where the artist stood for 24 hours and moved/turned himself in the opposite direction the earth is turning... here is a link to that piece (his website) but unfortunately you can't see the video (which was a timelapse photography piece)... but you can get an idea from the pictures there... also there is some other interesting works on his site.
