bradascnyc "Reflection," which I created in 2011 in remembrance of designer and artist Tobias Wong. The six foot tall memorial is made from water-jet cut black glass (treated as both stained glass and as mosaics, brass, and plywood with an internal lighting mechanism. #design #art #architecture #modern #conceptual #memorial #gallery #galleryrpure #tobywong #tobiaswong #genius #2011 #black #stainedglass #mosaic #light #lighting #tiffany #louiscomforttiffany 2d

nouvellegarde Tobi, in his favorite Comme des Garçons shirt, with his spectacular Félix González-Torres “Untitled” (Placebo) candy spill for his Gift Shop so beautifully curated for the Terminal 5 exhibition at JFK Airport. "Candies individually wrapped in shiny silver cellophane. Endless supply." He also invited Colette to be a part of his shop, for their first American art/retail project, back in 2004. A project he worked so hard on. This picture was taken on the opening night. I miss you every day, Tobs. ♡♡♡ 4d

I want to thank everyone @flashartmagazine (and particularly Michele D’Aurizio, Tan Cheng, & Gea Politi) for giving me the wonderful opportunity to edit & write a large survey on the coolest guy I have ever met, my dear friend, the late, great, TOBIAS WONG. All my sincere gratitude for all the help and most beautiful contributions also goes to Phyllis Chan, Aric Chen, CB Cooke, Douglas Coupland, Nick DeMarco, Viviane Gosselin, Pablo Griff, Jenny Holzer, Dean Kaufman, Terence Koh, Josée Lepage, Dean MacGregor, Frederick McSwain, Lawrence Weiner, the Museum of Vancouver, and the Estate of Tobias Wong.

colorlessgreenagelessbeauty Donald Tobias Wong (June 10, 1974 – May 30, 2010) committed suicide on May 30, 2010, at his East Village apartment in New York City at the age of 35. A New York Times report after Wong's death investigated his long history of parasomnia or sleep disorders, his ability to perform "elaborate tasks that require(d) agency and concentration" during sleep, and his partner's conviction that Wong hanged himself while sleep walking. #tobiaswong 2mon

cody_st_oughton #NothingExeedsLikeExcess I'm so old I remember when an Instagram was just a drug dealer who delivered and you certainly didn't talk about it if you used a selfie stick. On that note I need your help with a project kids. Do any of you remember Beverly Hills Head Shop and have any stories about it? Did you, your mom and pop, or Gran and Gramps shop here? Apparently you could buy your diamond encrusted vials, cabochon ruby topped teeny tiny spoons, and even 24kt custom creations to make your naughty little habits at least feel more glam and grand. So if you have any cool fancy pants paraphernalia from the 70s or 80s do let me know! Xoxo, CstO. Doodads pictures by #TobiasWong 5mon
