Art Gone Wrong

New York-based Japanese furniture designer Takeshi Miyakawa spent five days at notorious Riker's Island for a public art project he designed, one that was mistaken for a series of bombs. The soft-spoken Miyakawa, who crafts models for starchitect Rafael Viñoly, will appear in court next week on charges of "reckless endangerment, criminal nuisance and 'planting a false bomb.'" [NYT]
