Local artist Paul Pescador performs art when he sits down to eat at a restaurant. He explains: "I sit down at a table in a crowded restaurant. I pick up a saltshaker from across the table and place it in my pocket. From my jacket, I pull out a different shaker, one I took from the last restaurant I visited. I carefully place it next to the pepper and order my meal." He then photographs it. He also documents the number of steps a grocery cart travels from its home. (via Urban Prankster)
