Hello, Big Kitty.

Hintmag says Tom Sachs placed these outside what, going by its name, I can only assume is a corporate building of some kind (Lever House?). But imagine coming to work to find these outside....(this might come a few weeks late but the idea of a giant-sized version of the kitty that used to be my pattern of choice for pencil boxes in elementary school, is nothing short of surreal).

much like those orbs gracing the culvert, i have the urge to want to take a shot at the Kitty's head with some sort of rifle and watch it explode.

would have been fun if the Kitty had a battery powered growl, a la Gojira. and canned screaming too.

The Clothes Horse: It does loom a good deal..plus the whiteness might invite comparisons to ghosts.

Wendy: That's more or less the reaction any blown-up, larger-than-life cartoon would get from me, too :)

Bobo: That's kind of sick (though I must admit to being tempted to vandalise those ghastly orbs myself). But a battery- powered growl? Think of the poor people in those offices...

Naomi: yeah, it's really huge..

Riz: What!!! Ok, not shocking, but somehow I didn't expect it, but then who does?
