City envy: a Paris artist is *literally* searching for a needle in a haystack right now

Top of our (imaginary) list of cool things we wish were happening in London right now is this work of performance art from Sven Sachsalber.

Sven’s previous performances have included spending a day in a sealed room with a cow and eating poisonous mushrooms, but he’s currently in situ at the Palais de Tokyo art gallery in Paris as he literally searches for a tiny needle in a giant haystack.

The exhibit is due to take 48 hours to finish but will go on for longer if he doesn’t find the needle in time. The whole thing is being live-streamed on YouTube, so you can watch the action from LDN. Warning: if you’re someone who gets stressed out when you lose things, the footage is going to make you very anxious.
