Tehching Hsieh and Linda Montano - Art/Life piece 

Between the 4th of July 1983 and 4th of July 1984, artists Linda Montano and Tehching Hsieh tied themselves together with an 8 foot long rope. They were not allowed to touch each other during this entire time period and each maintained different jobs during the whole stint. At the beginning each of them shaved their heads, allowing the growth of their hair to also record their time together in a physical measurement.

    Hsieh also did the photo every-hour-on-the-hour project for one year, which, if you think about it, means he never slept...
