Huang Yong Ping‘s Wu Zei is a giant sea creature 25 meters across, meant to be a hybrid between an octopus and a cuttlefish. It hangs suspended from the museum’s famous Medusa chandelier–hence the glowing head–with tentacles reaching out into the exhibition space. The creature both evokes the life of the sea and refers to the looming, human-caused disasters that threaten marine life.
Showing through May 2012 @ the Musée Océanographique de Monaco.

And now there’s a chance that it may be turned into a hotel.
A great night made our 17 hours in NYC well worth it.
