The art student who is spending a week naked in a box at the Iceland Academy of the Arts has received a death threat, mbl.is reports.

Almar Atlason, who is spending the week in a glass box under the watchful eye of a streaming video camera, is being watched by a number of people via the internet.

Professor Ólafur Sveinn Gíslason reports a phone call was placed to the Academy’s office by a threatening individual, who made indecent remarks. Police have been notified. A group of people also gathered in front of the Academy overnight, shouting, and attempted to break into the building.

According to Ólafur, the building will be watched day and night until the end of the project.
