Performance artist Jordan Wayne Long is planning on traveling from Bald Knob, Arkansas to Portland, Oregon, while locked in a crate. The 7 day trip will consist of him playing and communicating through Lord of the Rings Online; this will be his only connection to the outside world. Long claims that this project relates to his study of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and related coping mechanisms, or is it just a way to do some uninterrupted gaming. Maybe the study is really about the convergence from being a geek, to dweeb, and complete and utter dorkness.
Long’s friend, Bradi Roberts, will be blogging and transporting him on her truck. Long’s experiment will take place between July 1 to July 7. You can check on the status of his trip via his Twitter or his blog.
