Meanwhile at the IBM Watson building, the Jeff Koons rabbit sculpture has arrived for the lobby

We spotted this tweet yesterday from Katya Kazakina, art market reporter at Bloomberg News...



As the Times noted last March, the new building at 51 Astor Place will feature a 14-foot-tall red rabbit sculpture by Jeff Koons will anchor the granite lobby.

OK! To date for the building, we have Watson, an artificially intelligent computer system capable of answering questions posed in natural language, and now a 14-foot-tall red rabbit. Now what?

To answer your question, what we need next is a hole for it all to fall into.

Jeff Koon's logo should be a picture of Fonzie on his motorcycle jumping over a shark.
