leave a comment »

By filling the turbine hall at the Tate Modern with 500,000 porcelain replicas of sunflower seeds, Ai WeiWei convinces the world the artistry and mass-market, mass-production power of the world’s second largest economy. Each seed is hand-made, hand-painted, and carpets the entire space of the huge hall. Visitors are then encouraged the walk all over the exhibit… a comment on the disposability of mass-replicated art? via designboom
