This piece of art is called "Painting to Hammer a Nail", is made by Yoko Ono. However, she wasn't the only one to make this. Her idea on this piece was to have her audience help create it. She left a can of nails and a hammer and told her audience to nail something that they had on the wall. Soon enough it looked like this. Yoko's only request was that the material should be returned to her when the exhibit ended. I think this is an interesting idea because its interactive with the viewer. Instead of just looking at what an artist does, you get to help create the finish product, which is a pretty cool idea. This is much different than any other types of art we have learned already because you get to help create what the piece turns out to be.
