Nate Hill's "Punch Me Panda"-2

Performance artist Nate Hill is at it again (see our interview with Nate here) with his Punch Me Panda project. In this community service experiment, Nate travels around New York City, offering strangers the chance to hit him for a penny as a way for them to release pent up emotions.

The Wall Street Journal has a fantastic photo essay and article at the link below.
