Ever wonder what the fountain at Columbus Circle looks like to Columbus? I hadn't either. But Berlin-based Japanese artist Nishi Tatzu has built a living room around the statue, and for the next two months you can visit Cristobal and see the new world as he sees it. He is a gracious host, if a bit stiff - I don't think he was expecting company.
His living room has a television, some book cases, couches, a big coffee table with art books, the usual. His view, which I'd thought diagonally westward, in fact goes straight down Eighth Avenue.
Most appreciated by his visitors seems to be his witty wallpaper.
