What are some examples of people who lived their life as though it were a piece of art?

In the sense of Foucault?
tynamite's avatar Barbara Kruger, Roy Lichenstein and Andy Warhol. To them, anything and everything can be used in art, and looked at in a provocative manner. I'll just say anyone who makes postmodern and pop art.

You can see by their postmodern art, that the fabric of life and society goes into it. This is why they are postmodernism. You can see from their art that they are really good artists.

Their pop art is when they make art out of modern culture.

You can confirm why these artists live their life as if its a piece of art, by their explanations for their art. This is why they are really good artists, because not only does their art look amazing, they also know have a meaning for their art.

Andy Warhol

What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coca-Cola, Liz Taylor drinks Coca-Cola, and just think, you can drink Coca-Cola, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the cokes are the same and all the cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.
Barbara Kruger

"I think people have to set up little battles. They have to demonize people whom they disagree with or feel threatened by. But it's the ideological framing of the debate that scares me." - Barbara Kruger.
"I work with pictures and words because they have the ability to determine who we are and who we aren’t."
"Do you know why language manifests itself the way it does in my work? It's because I understand short attention spans."
Roy Lichenstein

We like to think of industrialization as being despicable. I don't really know what to make of it. There’s something terribly brittle about it. I suppose I would still prefer to sit under a tree with a picnic basket rather than under a gas pump, but signs and comic strips are interesting as subject matter. There are certain things that are usable, forceful, and vital about commercial art. We're using those things — but we're not really advocating stupidity, international teenagerism, and terrorism.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
