Untitled (Structure that Eats)

Lately, I have been very interested in variations on change and how to subtly depict those changes.  A friend pointed me out to this sculptural piece that is being exhibited through April 21 as part of Ileana Sonnabend: Ambassador for the New at the MoMA.  In Giovanni Anselmo’s Untitled (Structure that Eats) from 1968, a head of lettuce is pinned between two blocks of granite and held together by a copper wire. As the lettuce wilts, one of the blocks begins to fall.
