Los Angeles–based conceptual artist Chris Burden is well-known for his performance art pieces of the 1970s, including Shoot (1971), a response to the Vietnam War in which he had a friend shoot him in the arm with a .22-caliber rifle. In other works of self-peril, the artist was electrocuted, kidnapped, nailed, drowned, or lay immobile under a sheet of glass. Influenced by Marcel Duchamp and Dadaism and his interest in science and engineering, Burden has also created installations, models, toys, and kinetic and static sculptures, such as a rubber-band-powered model plane launched within a Concorde in flight.
