Frame visits two hotels where art plays major role: Jean Nouvel's sleek Sofitel hotel in Vienna, Austria (with glossy video-art ceilings by Pipilotti Rist) and Shogo Kawada's anime-inspired Chaos Sunline Hotel in Kamata, Japan.

We meet artist Tatzu Nishi, who takes famous landmarks and builds temporary spaces around them - most recently surrounding Singapore's famous Merlion sculpture with a hotel. Meanwhile, artist Jean-Francois Fourtou recreated his grandparents' home as an upside-down enigma. Finally, we talk to exhibition makers Holzer Kobler and take a tour of Ooze's Art Cave in Knokke, Belgium - an art collector's 'personal museum'.
