Nominated for Darwin Awards (both the artist and the judges)

That said, I have to be a bit skeptical. Art or stunt?

I'm not an artist, but a photographer, so I can't make a judgement on her art. :)

A low bar.

One has to wonder what the other 36 have going for them.

Maybe Ms. Huse is a true believer in truth in advertising? Certainly nobody can accuse her of misrepresenting a subject "being unable to free herself."

Call me a stick in the mud, but I don't see a lot of difference between this and those photographers who risk their lives and others to photograph on rail lines. You've mentioned this problem before.

She's lucky she didn't end up getting seriously injured or killed.

Irrespective of the pun, these days, so few objects of art stand on their own. There's always a story, some dramatic episode conveyed in some weak attempt to super-size your interest in the nothingness before you. The height of this lowbrow endeavor is when the artist needs to tell you not only what your looking at, but why. Bewilderment of junk is no cause for self doubt.
I call B.S. on the entire upside down mess.

The artist might qualify for an honourable mention - http://www.darwinawards.com/stupid/

Hoist by her own petard?

Sorry but someone had to!

Clearly she was just making an exhibition of herself...

Wait long enough and pretty much everyone will eventually do something stupid.
