Performance Art Among Its Highest, Literally

There’s scant information available about this video, and maybe the creators want to keep it that way. Nothing builds buzz quite like a few days of silence while the rest of us pontificate and ponder. Here’s what’s apparent: two guys film a woman sitting on a seat that juts out of a window on the 23rd floor. One asks, “Is she going to commit suicide?” At the very end, one of them says, “Is this for real?” (Or: “Real or fake?”)

This thing’s likely staged — it’s what this Shenzhen news show says, anyway, while criticizing the performers for endangering the people below — but it hardly makes it any less harrowing. Video not for those who are afraid of heights. Tudou version for those in China after the jump.
