One of my first freelance gigs in NYC was copyediting and fact-checking for a certain international arts journal published in a unique square format. We had a hell of a time finding out what Christo's real name is. He has a Romanian surname of some kind but shrouding it in mystery seems to be an extension of his aesthetic project. Not your standard day at the office.

Christo and Jeanne-Claude's The Gates, a Project for Central Park, New York City is coming this spring. You can joke all you want about Saran-wrapping stuff as art, but this is going to be byootiful and we New Yorkers are going to dig it.
