Now That's Clever

A friend of mine who lives in Japan found an advertisement for an exhibition of this fellow's work on a train he was riding, and he couldn't resist snapping a picture and sharing it with friends. I don't blame him--the photo captivated me too.

Apparently the artist--Yasumasa Morimura--is a pretty big player in the contemporary art world...big enough at least to have a major exhibition at a prominent Tokyo gallery. Intriguing, to say the least. As my friend commented, "Who said the Japanese don't have a sense of irony?"
