Weiwei at Tate Modern

I went to the Weiwei exhibition at Tate Modern today. The second half of the turbine hall is completely covered in these dainty handcrafted porcelain sunflower seeds. I loved it. The effect is strange, sitting there knowing that your surrounded by 100million hand crafted sunflower seeds, its crazy! 

I was surrounded by people who weren't really sure what we were allowed to do...are we allowed to play with it, lie down, sit down? Visitors bemused reactions to their surroundings was attention grabbing.
Despite the slightly dusty surroundings, the sound of people making their way through the exhibition is similar to walking along brighton beach...its quite nice.

Visit it! It is something to see.
