I wanted to post my photographs of the Sunflower Seeds by Ai Weiwei. What can I say about them that hasn't already been written? All i can say was although I understand why the public is unable to interact with the porcelain seeds ... all I wanted to do was run across them. The stillness of the field of seeds seemed to bring out a mischievousness in me ... which is what i think the artist intended. I wanted to run across them and feel them crush underneath my feet ... just as you would running along a beach feeling the crush of shells or coral between your toes.
I read recently that The Tate Modern is going to auction a bagful of seeds at Sothebys next month. However, they estimate that the bag will cost about £120,000 ... so I had better start saving!
I love the way he has illustrated his concept on his website
