After being takent to the precinct in Greenpoint, Takeshi used his one telephone call to contact, not a lawyer, but the office of Rafael Vinoly, as he was working on a project for them. But at 7AM, the only person around to answer the phone was a security guard. Takeshi proceeded to calmly dispense instructions for a project that was supposed to occur later that day. After jotting everything down, the guard – presumably confused and slightly bewildered – asked if Takeshi needed any help. — spoon-tamago.com
Takeshi Miyakawa, as you may recall, was recently arrested for his art installation that was mistaken as a planted bomb in NYC. Spoon & Tamago visits him in his studio to discuss his 5 days in jail, Milton Glaser, some new works as well as his current feelings about NY.
The artist intended it to be a display of his love for the city: white plastic bags stamped with the “I ♥ NY” logo lighted from within and glowing moonlike from lampposts and trees in Brooklyn and beyond. Almost immediately, the installation attracted attention, though probably not the kind the artist, Takeshi Miyakawa, expected. — nytimes.com
