19/05/11 Neon hat for the... Haze !! @ Museums Quartier, Vienna

I saw this guy at the press conference of GET IN THE HAZE, a brilliant exhibition that's now in Museums Quartier. He makes very cool stuff just check it his website.
I met him also in the evening and he was dressed with the same stuff but with a trucker hat instead of this beanie hat… but of the same identically color!! Genius!
