"I use myself to make my art. I guess I am the art\ , though I hate the corniness of that idea and have always sort of fought a gainst the little movements art critics give us. I&rsquo\;ve been called a conceptual artist\, a video artist\, a performance artist\, a media artist\ , a correspondence artist you name it\, even a ceramist for Christ&rsquo\;s sake. I think I may have even started a few. But I&rsquo\;ve always been o nly Lowell Darling. I&rsquo\;m not a member of anything. I&rsquo\;m simply just another lousy human body with a lot of ideas trying to escape."
< br />Lowell Darling is an American conceptual artist most notable for a ser ies of performances in the 1970s that included nailing cities to the earth\ , conducting &ldquo\;urban acupuncture&rdquo\; by placing oversize needles in the ground\, and stitching up the San Andreas Fault. His art includes a run for public office in the 1978 California gubernatorial election\, when his primary challenge to Governor Jerry Brown received some 62\,000 votes. He is the creator of the &ldquo\;Fat City School of Finds Art\,&rdquo\; an unaccredited institution that grants free Masters and PhD degrees to arts s tudents.

In 2010\, 32 years after their last election faceoff\, Dar ling once again challenged Jerry Brown in the race for governor. He has des cribed that 2010 run as a means to raise awareness about California&rsquo\; s requirement of a two-thirds majority to pass a budget or tax.
