    On December 4, 2009, The Wall Street Journal published an article by 'James Franco' called "A Star, a Soap and the Meaning of Art: Why an appearance on 'General Hospital' qualifies as performance art" in which Franco summarized the history of Performance Art and explained his 20-episode acting stint on the daytime soap opera General Hospital as an attempt to create Performance Art of his own. About his appearance on the show, he wrote, "I disrupted the audience's suspension of disbelief, because no matter how far I got into the character, I was going to be perceived as something that doesn't belong to the incredibly stylized world of soap operas. Everyone watching would see an actor they recognized, a real person in a made-up world. In performance art, the outcome is uncertain-and this was no exception. My hope was for people to ask themselves if soap operas are really that far from entertainment that is considered critically legitimate. Whether they did was out of my hands....performance art is all about context....when I wear green makeup and fly across a rooftop in Spider-Man 3, I'm working as an actor, but were I to do the same thing on the subway platform, a host of possibilities would open up. Playing the Green Goblin in the subway would no longer be about creating the illusion that I am flying. It would be about inserting myself in a familiar space in such a way that it becomes stranger than fiction, along the lines of what I'm doing on 'General Hospital.'....If all goes according to plan, it will definitely be weird. But is it art?".
