nyum, nyum

chewing gum
when friedman chews 1,500 pieces of bubblegum to build a
perfect sphere (untitled, 1990) that ends up wedged into a corner
of the room as if it were, precisely, a piece of chewing gum,
it is the knowledge of his quasi medieval investment of time that
gives the piece its power.

That piece is a favorite of mine, but I think it's trumped by his 1,000 Hours of Staring, which is simply a large piece of blank paper that he supposedly stared at for a total of 1000 hours.
