Back in June, we spoke with Vito Acconci about his decision to close up shop. The artist and designer essentially said he was yet another victim of the recession—”The contradictory thing is that at a time when there are these architectural projects that we have the possibility of doing, how do we keep the studio active on a day-to-day basis?”—but now we’re wondering if he maybe had a career change in mind. It would appear so, as Archinect alerts us to Vito’s appearance in none other than October’s J. Crew catalog. Maybe it’s some kind of performance art? He’s ready for his close-up after the jump.

Looks good, doesnt he?
