Tom Friedman

Tom Friedman : toothpicksTom has some super cool projects dealing with everyday items. Above is a sculpture he made with probably a million toothpicks. I’ve seen his work in the past, but recently went to the ecstasy exhibit in LA and saw a piece by him which just made me laugh in a good way. It was a piece titled something like, “piece of paper I stared at for 1000 hours”. It was simply a piece of paper framed nicely behind a piece of glass, but the idea behind the piece is “what is art”. Tom stared at this exact piece of paper for 1000 hours. Is this piece of paper “art” or is that up to the observer/artist.
