254 Pieces of Felt

Textile is not just a decorative material, but could be a pure art media. National Art Gallery of Canada features a "sculpture" Untitled by Robert Morris made exclusively out of precisely counted pieces of felt randomly piled up on the floor. Curious public does not always get an artistic point and occasionally throws garbage onto the pile to add some visual accents.

Clearly, what is the artistic point? Slicing the pieces of felt? H-m-m... Organizing the pieces on the floor? That seems to be the cleaner's job and in this case has to be credited appropriately. No such credit on the wall.

Look for my works inspired by this "piece of ... art" in future postings.
