The Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti is more than a rocker, he is also a serious sculptor and recently installed this piece on the wall of Rag & Bone on East Houston Street in New York City. The installation features 24 alters with plastic-cast astronauts on each affixed to the store's Elizabeth Street art wall, a space that has seen work from various artists including Henry SamelsonErik den BreejenYoung & Sick, and Aakash Nihalani, among others.

Moretti's alters and astronaut sculptures are attached with velcro, and as you can see in the third photo above people have already stolen a couple of them (maybe they thought Banksy was responsible for the installation). Head to 73 East Houston Street to see it before the thieves take it all.
