My humble view…..She breathes life into her world ….nothing hidden from the crowd….then slowly destroys her world….with everyone watching. Sound familiar to anyone? I love her body reference to the Dutch Masters. (Du Champ Pissed away his world in a urinal ….remember?)

UltimateGamer623

redwow
I just got suckered into watching this. I was looking for some hero to rescue her.

fasx56
If someone is naked in the streets for whatever reason the police would be called, this has to be a phony set up.

Rico Gutierrez
She is exposing yourself in the most vulnerable way that she can by being nude. She cut herself and is bleeding while tearing up the globe. if bleeding for your art does not make it valid I don’t know what does.

Bert Praxenthaler
Very impressive, this extreme exposure!

Costel Miraculosul
Can you see?…What she is trying to show us is that: the whole Earth is loved by her! (as a naked woman!)-but…nobody else love the planet! All people stairs at her,while drinking and eating! (and making nothing,while she began to destroy the material of planet!).It’s too much complexity..???…for the ordinary people!

Kin Walkup
She is trying to tell everyone that if you giav a woman the world she will tear it apart. So are you voting for Hillary so she can tear our world apart what’s left of it.
This is a wake up call America. Don’t let Hillary take over or we are all doomed.

Alex Chang
Only if you are a Christian, then you will know what she is doing.
At the every first beginning when God creates the world, everything is so pure and beautiful, including nudity.
Only when Adam and Eve betrayed God, sin reign the world and even nudity became ashamed.
The lady cuts the earth into pieces indicates the dead end of the world resulted from all kinds of sins against God’s righteousness. Then a new world which is God’s kingdom will be reborn again. Everything will revive as the first beginning and only God’s beloved sons and daughters would be permitted to live in the new world with God forever. There will be no sins anymore!

Fausto Ramirez

ผู้แสดงเป็นผู้มีความคิดสูงมากผมคิดส่วนตัว รูปร่างไม่มีอะไรทุกส่วนเป็นธรรมชาติเกิดขึ้นทุกคนเหมือนกัน แต่คนเป็นผู้สร้างโลก กำหนดให้โลกเป็นรูปแบบ ของทุกสรรพสิ่งที่คนเป็นผู้สร้าง และแบ่งปันเท่าเทียมและไม่เท่าเทียม เป็นเรื่องยากที่จะให้ตรงกับต้องการได้ เมื่อโลกเจริญเต็มที่แล้ว จะสลายลงย่อยยับเป็นชิ้นเล็กๆ กลับมาเป็นสภาพความต้องการใหม่ๆต่อไป…
google translate something like: The show is a personal opinion, I think very highly. Every shape, nothing is happening all the same. But as the Creator The world is a model Of all the things that people are the creators. And share equally and inequality It is difficult to meet the requirements. When full-grown, world To break down catastrophically small pieces. Back to the new requirements of the following …

when those who are suffering from depression and start cutting themselves, what they do is cutting every possibility or opportunity that the world could offer them.
naked because she’s not afraid to show that depression is a social problem and requires our attention and consideration and support to others that go through this difficulties.
I respect the opinion of others but for me that’s what I get out of it
