Hello Kitty Fountains by Tom Sachs

Last year, I had an unexpected layover in NYC on the way from LA to Istanbul. Wandering around the city for a few hours I came across a series of Hello Kitty fountains, that were kind of tucked under a building. A little research led me to the artist, Tom Sachs.

I particularly remember this one with tears coming out of Hello Kitty’s eyes. It is a great example of an artist made water feature. It is really fun. Being a fountain designer, I remember thinking that I wished that the streams of tears were laminar and that they could be choreographed… Shooting, choreographed tears would be so cool.
