It’s easy to read a lot into the Lying Down Game (otherwise known as planking), in which people lie face down in odd places. You could see it as relational art that challenges our preconceptions of how to behave in public space. You could see it as a comment on internet-based cultural globalization. Or you could see it as a silly web trend. Whatever the case, it’s strangely fun to look at.
