It is very likely that in the last few weeks, you've read about Ai Weiwei in a major publication. Ai, who is currently being detained, has become a symbol for the Chinese government's active repression of free speech. This sculpture, which is made of Pu'er tea prisms and is surrounded by scattered tea, engages the viewer in a dialogue about the binaries of tradition and modernity, the East and the West.
