Artist Lowell Darling has long focused on conceptually guided direct actions as mediums of expression, akin to performance art but more inclusive, drawing attention to problems in society and existence. For example, the energy blockages created by psychic and environmental stresses, which Darling has previously attempted to treat with a series he calls “Worldwide Acupuncture.” Think of New Year’s Day, then, as “Worldwide Massage” — he calls it Hands-on Healing Day — as everyone everywhere is invited to pause, mid-hangover, at noon local time, kneel down, place their hands on the Earth and think good thoughts for her speedy recovery. Post your pics at the project’s FB page, so we can all feel better, too.
