flashback: agassi's racket

From designer Damian O’Sullivan, after Agassi‘s last match at the 2006 U.S. Open: “This weekend Andre Agassi played his last game of professional tennis, bowing out as he did against the 11 year younger Benjamin Becker. Three years ago, [I] designed a tennis racket for HEAD Sport AG bearing Agassi’s face on the blade of the racket. Although the tennis racket was never produced we would hereby like to show it one more time as a last tribute to the great man of tennis.” (MoCo Loco)

Another Damien: The pickled shark by artist Damien Hirst, entitled The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, heads to the Met later this summer. Owner Steve Cohen, who bought the piece for $8 million, has arranged for it to stay at the museum for at least two years. (FYI: the original shark started disintegrating almost immediately after its initial exhibition in 1999; the replacement should stay intact much longer.) (NYT)
