Sweat socks, Lifesavers and trash bags are some of the unlikely materials from which Tom Friedman constructs his delicately refined sculptures and installations. He says that he likes to let his materials determine his processes. He chews bubblegum, unravels string and crumples paper. Although these sound like common actions, when Friedman does them, they are not. He is an obsessive who inexhaustibly converts ordinary objects into extraordinary sculptures.

With current works concocted from such inspiring ingredients as toilet paper, chewing gum, toothpaste and partially sucked Lifesavers glued together with sugar and saliva (translation: "spit")

I am writing in response to the article (Feb. 4) in which Tom Friedman is quoted as saying that the members of his Concerned Carlton Terrace Homeowners believe the seven-building Warner Ridge project proposed for the northeast corner of Oxnard Street and De Soto Avenue "the best development scenario which has ever been considered for this property." Mr. Friedman states that 40 homeowners in Carlton Terrace have joined about 65 homeowners in the Warner Hills Condominiums to support said project.

Ford is not starring as the hero of a summer blockbuster but in fact is tagging along on a NASA mission to measure levels of methane and carbon dioxide, two primary greenhouse gases, in the atmosphere in the premiere of Showtime's new climate-change documentary, "Years of Living Dangerously.
