Comments on: Ai Weiwei: 100 Million Sunflower Seeds at Tate Modern http://blog.visitlondon.com/2010/10/ai-weiwei-100-million-sunflower-seeds-at-tate-modern/ Enjoy the very best of London Thu, 09 Apr 2015 09:58:44 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.2 By: Molly http://blog.visitlondon.com/2010/10/ai-weiwei-100-million-sunflower-seeds-at-tate-modern/#comment-9522 Sun, 17 Oct 2010 12:12:24 +0000 http://blog.visitlondon.com/?p=15496#comment-9522 Such a shame that it now has been closed to the public – I was one of the lucky ones to ‘Walk on the Weiwei” : http://wp.me/p15T3h-3n

Very moving and thought-provoking piece of work, but its closure also adds an extra dimension to its meaning and significance. Just a pity that no more visitors will get to interact in a more playful way with it.

“Although porcelain is very robust, we have been advised that the interaction of visitors with the sculpture can cause dust which could be damaging to health following repeated inhalation over a long period of time.

“In consequence, Tate, in consultation with the artist, has decided not to allow members of the public to walk across the sculpture.”

Great video! It’s nice to see people enjoying the seeds. Tate Modern looks a bit like an indoor beach.

That’s a difficult question to answer. But it’s fun and free so that’s two good reasons to visit!

I suppose I better get myself along and find out for myself…
