An artist sometimes doesn’t know where the line is between regular life and actual art. Like a photographer, we see something, find importance in it, and that is what makes it art… My mother had given me a little tomato plant. Plants are really interesting to me. You just water them, keep them propped up, give them enough sunlight – and they grow flowers and food so quickly… I took care of this plant for weeks and weeks until finally it had grown a bunch of little tomatoes. I really hate tomatoes however, so I thew them away. This moment reminded me of a line from John Baldessari’s Pencil Story, “I think this has something to do with art”.
