Tatzu Nishi has started his Hotel of Manta installation in Helsinki, which is built around a famous fountain in the area, known as the Kauppatori fountain. The artist is known for building art pieces in public places, allowing for the public to interact with his work.

The interesting part about the Hotel of Manta is that it will actually house guests in the evening, while during the day it remains as an art installation. This demonstrates the versatility of Tatzu Nishi and his work, as it clearly has more than one function. As expected, the hotel is completely booked up already, but guests can still come and see the installation, take in its beauty and appreciate the public work of art.
