This is one in a series that Weiwei has been working on since 1997 and it consists of 40 antique wooden stools from the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) which have been taken apart and reassembled in new ways. Weiwei wants "us to question our assumptions about objects and change the way we look at things". I like the shadows the piece cast and since this was early in the evening the big crowds had not yet gathered and I was able to get them in the shot. The little houses in the background are made from solid blocks of tea leaves and reference the traditional tea rooms of China.
The November 1 theme for City Daily Photo bloggers is "Heights."
