For a brief time, we had an art installation in our central gallery. I believe it was a statement about the digestive act and the cycle of life and the futility of dental hygiene, but I may be mistaken.
In any case, I realized that it would be hard to get it into a museum because it is one of those thoughtful pieces which refuse to let you define where “art” ends and “regular life” picks up.
Also, the label itself would be a nightmare for a curator:
“Did You Floss?”
