Artist Covers Himself in Stamps to Create Performance Art

As part of a suite of three public performances completed in Washington, DC last Spring, artist Wilmer Wilson IV created 3 separate skins over his body, comprised of increasing values of US postage stamps, and walked through the city to post offices, asking to be mailed. The piece was inspired by the story of Henry "Box" Brown, a 19th century American slave who escaped to freedom by mailing himself, in a box, to the free north.
