Felix Gonzalez-Torres (November 26, 1957 – January 9, 1996) was an American, Cuban-born, gay visual artist. González-Torres was known for his minimal installations and sculptures in which he used materials such as strings of lightbulbs, clocks, stacks of paper, or packaged hard candies.

The most interesting fact for me in his works is interaction with a viewer. If you look closer on his minimalistic sculptures, you will see that some of them like stack of sheets or a shape made of sweets made for viewer to take a pice of this art out of the gallery. And the gallery that have bought such work should constantly renew it. 

That breaks the stereotype about еру uniqueness of the art and limited edition of art works. And finally it ruins the whole the economy of gallery business.
