Hand-Made Porcelain Sunflower Seeds (21 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       12 Oct 2010       10370       11

This is one of the masterpieces introduced in Tate Modern’s vast Turbine Hall (London) by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. At first glance, these are usual sunflower seeds. But if you take a closer look, you’ll see huge seeds that are not real. These are hand-painted replicas made out of porcelain. Each seed is unique, and there are one hundred million of them. Can you believe that it took 2.5 years and 1,600 people to produce this installation?

So some one payd like 2.5 x 20.000 = 50.000
50.000 x 1.600 = 80.000.000 for some porcelain sunflower seeds.

(based on year salaris of 20.000 and all working 2.5 years

This 'installation' is not art, modern or otherwise, but it is ridiculous. It would probably been cheaper and taken less time to fill the stupid hall with real seeds which could have been fed to the birds.
