I never called the hobo thing art. I never even said I got sodomized. I never claim to be making art in most of the videos that I did. Art is a useless word nowadays anyway.
But who cares? I provide the lolz, and hopefully at the same time I can make you think about things differently, and even for just a second, give your consciousness a little shock, then I'm happy So "shock value" or not, I like making and getting shocks in different ways at different moments at different degrees. I get pretty shocked when I see a really strong lifter or when I see a great painting. I also get pretty shocked when I step on dog shit in a 5 star restaurant. IMO you need a little bit of both kinds of shocks and everything else in between to not get bored with life.
There are things I do that I consider "serious" (training, playing music, making sculptures) that might shock you, and things I do for pure entertainment and attention that might also shock you, and then there are things I do for "troll", which if you do it right, it becomes a form of satire that can fit somewhere in between.
If you take and do things too seriously people might mock you and call you pretentious and egoistic. If you take and do things too lightly or when you have too much fun, people might think that you are mindless fucking around without a point. But if you troll right, you can always play safe by slipping to the other side when one is accusing you with the other and deliver the point across through stealth.
I can't tell which of the three I'm doing most of the times, so I can't really blame people when they simply put me and my endeavors and products in categories like "art", "non-art", for "shocks" and what not. But this is the fun of it for me, and hopefully for you too.
