NYC really is the place to be right for awesome installation art. Following on from Friends with You's Rainbow City, Clutter's Jim and Josh took a trip out to visit the GIANT KAWS companion installation titled 'Passing through' currently located outside of The Standard hotel in NYC's Meat Packing District.
Standing at 16 foot tall and sculpted out of fiberglass, this massive KAWS companion, is on an international tour, making a temporary home in NYC until October 2011 (which is awesome so i can go visit!). Previously this piece has been seen at his solo exhibition in Hong Kong and at the Aldrich Museum in Connecticut.
