Jun 21, 2011Porcelain Sunflower Seeds – Ai Weiwei

Visitors to the Tate Modern (London UK) study a huge pile of porcelain sunflower seeds

I wish I’d been able to seen the full installation.

Unfortunately it had finished before we got to the UK. It is difficult to imagine what the complete installation of 100 million sunflower seeds would have looked like. Even more difficult to comprehend is that each seed was hand painted.

I wanted to capture the contrast in color between the visitors and the seeds, and complement it with a contrast in focus. I’m pleased with the result.
