This week sees Austrian artist Willi Dorner's "Bodies In Urban Spaces" conceptual street art project taking to the streets of Porto, Portugal where his army of brightly colored zen contortionists have descended to jam public spaces with their intertwined bodies like some American Apparel ad gone wrong. It's an amazing, long-standing project from the artist that has achieved the impossible in making performance art something that is actually interesting. Have a look:
