Man Buries Himself Under Road For 3 Days In Stunningly Realistic Portrayal Of Life In Hobart

Artist Mike Parr has been buried in a small container underneath a road in Hobart, in a moving depiction of what it’s like to live in the city.

“It’s cold and dark and boring,” Parr reported from a two-way radio, five metres below one of the city’s main streets. “There’s absolutely nothing to do here. I want to move to Melbourne”.

In what has been described as a test of endurance, Parr will stay in the container for 72 hours and some people will live in Hobart for their entire lives. “It’s definitely a hole,” one onlooker said.

One Sydneysider enquired about buying the spacious studio apartment.
