This is Not a Room
by Tatzu Nishi
I recommend taking a look at more of Nishi's weirdly displaced rooms... they're all equally fascinating.

Nixon... Confused and Mourning
How delightful! A confused Nixon... talking to Spiro Agnew. Or below, Nixon (rapidly) mourns the death of the Hulk.

A traditional Japanese teahouse by architect Terunobu Fujimori, which he calls, "the ultimate personal architecture." He says it feels like an extension of one's body, or "like a piece of clothing."
Somehow it reminds me of it Howl's Castle.

It almost has the look of a golden flame that has taken an unfortunate tumble onto it's side. However, to the trained eye (such as those belonging to Tinselman... and practically everyone who's ever seen it), one can tell the true nature of this glorious wonder: poop. Giant Golden Poop!... gleaming like a poopy beacon atop the Asahi brewery in Asakusa.
Don't forget to enjoy the Golden Poop panoramically
Golden Poop from space.

Cigar Boxes Galore
Ever since I became aware of my grandfather's habits, I discovered he would escaped the house at least once a day, taking long walks with cigar in hand. He allowed us to walk with him, however, at an early age it became apparent these walks were no time for frolic... for fun and games. Like him, we had to remain quiet. Contemplative. Introspective. Enveloped in the warm ceremonial scent of cigar smoke. This was fine by me. Somehow it made me feel a little more grown up... walking silently, side by side with this silver haired giant. Wrapped in his smokey halo.
There were cigar boxes galore scattered around Grampy's house; they were a mysterious and wonderful artifact of my grandfather smoking habit. I think my brother still has one.
Flickr user PopKulture has photographed dozens of similar cigar boxes... I recently stumbled across them; they're definetely worth checking out.

I redesigned my Tinselman site. The Gallery remains essentially the same; the most-used words found in the comments for any one painting become the title for that painting. So please continue to name my paintings! (They need you.)
