Mike Parr performance - Democratic Torture

Democratic Torture - "By touching a hotspot on their screens the Global audience can shock my exhausted face...". Yesterday his face "was sewn into a bind" today in around 3 hours time viewers may "contribute an electric shock direct to Mike Parr by interacting directly with the webcast"
A SMH article and an Artist's Biography provide some context.

i don't understand 'performance art' like this. a person choosing to be tortured when they are so fortunate as to have a choice? i wonder what a survivor of real torture thinks about it.
