Felix Gonzalez-Torres

In this untitled piece by Felix Gonzalez-Torrez, the artist piled massive amounts of candy in his exhibit and told visitors to take a piece. In this way, he included the public in his piece of art, while at the same time breaking the age-old "no touching" rules of viewing. Also, this ensured that the piece would be constantly changing, as it was being shaped by different people, then the candy stock would be refilled and the process would start over.
