What a lovely video to come across this morning. Ai Weiwei is one of my favorite artists and perhaps just one of my favorite thinkers overall. I'm not typically one who appreciates conceptual art very well, but Ai Weiwei's work always touches my heart some how. I wish I could see this piece in person, but the video was a nice consolation prize.
Has anyone seen the work of Ai Weiwei? We actually have a piece of his here in the Presidio in San Francisco right now, but I haven't been to see it yet.
What are you feelings about conceptual art? How do you think ceramics plays into this genre?
