Guess how performance artist Sven Sachsalber just spent the past two days?

Sachsalber was burrowed deep in a giant pile of hay inside Paris' Palais de Tokyo to—get this—find a needle. The artist, the Telegraph writes, "is usually the main protagonist in his creations, often based on 'physical exhaustion.'" His past stunts have included, the BBC reports, "spending 24 hours in a locked room with a cow and sawing off tree branches while perched on top."

He started looking for the needle at noon yesterday, working until midnight; he took a 12 hour break before resuming his search today. "Who knows how long it will take to find it," the museum told the Telegraph.

He found it.
