Marco Brambilla's Evolution and Civilization in the elevators to the Top of the Standard; created matchbooks with artist Chris Johanson; and recently hosted AOL's Seven On Seven competition, which paired seven leading artists with seven technologists and challenged them to create anything from a new application to a new social networking site. They also just erected KAWS statue, Companion (Passing Through), a sixteen-foot-tall sculpture hanging its head in shame
