Everyone's favorite Icelandic performance artist wants someone to donate their dead body so he can film himself dancing with them for about an hour just after their death. Assuming you were critically ill and the timing was right, would you sign up?

I've heard of people using people when they're alive but to use someone when they're dead, takes the cake. Count me out.

Can we both fit in the cremation chamber?

Somebody's desperate for attention. His art must suck.

No. I don't have any specific wishes for my body after I die (other than that it be used for organ donation or science if possible), but this is really unappealing. Even if I were willing to consider this for some strange reason, I wouldn't want to spend my last days alive questioning this guy about the performance and enlisting people to ensure nothing more egregious is done to my body.

He better be able to lift a pretty hefty weight to dance with with my courts. It only will be up for a couple ounces lighter.

Just plain bizarre! The guy is a morbid nutcase.

I would be dead so I wouldn't be offended, but this is not art and is certainly pointing to the fact that this person has some mental issues or is strictly out for shock. It's not art, it's disturbing.

I would be dead so I wouldn't care what happens to my body. As long as whatever organs that can be used are harvested first.

No thanks. Even if no other use can be found for my body (organ/tissue donation; medical/forensic research etc.), and even though I don't think there will be anything left of "me" inhabiting it, that's just... skeevy.

No, that's just plain creepy.

This needs no logical criticism. This guy is a nut.

Hey! Jesus said "don't judge stuff and whatever!" I don't recall Him making an exception for performance artists who want to dance with the bodies of recently dead people!

Sorry, I let a liberal atheist use my phone for a minute to call their social worker and they somehow got into my SOH account.

Amateur mistake from a seasoned veteran

My vote in this poll actually does reflect my opinion. I have zero interest in letting this weirdo anywhere near my corpse after I kick the bucket.
