 If a stranger sat silently across from you and stared straight into your eyes, what kind of emotions would you feel? Or, better yet, how long would it take before you broke down and cried? In 2010, at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, world-renowned performance artist Marina Abramovic put on The Artist is Present, or what’s been called, “a milestone in the field of performance art.” She sat silent and still, “like a mountain,” and stared into the eyes of anyone who was brave enough to engage with her. Visitors took a seat across from the artist and sat there as long as they could (or wanted to).
