Orlan: This Is My Body... This Is My Software Between Western Culture and Non-Western Culture

Orlan, a performance artist who uses her own body and the procedures of plastic surgery to make "carnal art," presented a fascinating noontime lecture on her extensive- and often literal- body of work to an enthralled audience. Orlan's most famous and controversial works include "Documentary Study: The Head of Medusa," "The Reincarnation of Saint Orlan," "This is my Body, This is my Software," and "The Kiss of the Artist." Her visit was co-sponsored by the Drama Department and the Stanford Institute for Creativity and the Arts.
