Ai Weiwei / 艾未未 : Sunflower Seeds

Ai Weiwei / 艾未未 : Sunflower Seeds

Ai Weiwei 艾未未 Sunflower Seeds at the Tate Modern, London – part of the Unilever Series. 12th October 2010 to 2nd May 2011.

See also a related set of CGI / 3D Computer Generated Images based on the work.

The work is made up of 100 million porcelain ceramic sunflower seeds, with the characteristic dark stripes created by individually hand painting a glaze by skilled craft workers in workshops in the Chinese city of Jingdezhen / 景德镇, a region with a very long history of production of quality pottery.

The seeds are grey and white, but the combination of skylight and artificial lighting creates purple and green hues in the shadows.

Visitors could originally walk upon the "field of seeds", but health concerns over the small quantities of airborne ceramic / vitreous dust that might be generated by friction between the seeds resulted in the work being fenced off with a knee high wire rope, and continuous guarding.

Both the public and the artist were not very happy with this arrangement.

Ai Weiwei ("Ai" is the family name) needles away at the conflict that arises between China’s ferocious economic freedoms and growth, and the restrictions resulting from an authoritarian single party state. He has both been the artistic consultant on the Beijing National (Olympic) Stadium and also endured house arrest and international travel restrictions. On one occasion he was so badly assaulted by the police that he almost died, requiring surgery to attend to internal bleeding from a head injury.

All the same. All different. Sunflower seeds are a traditional chinese snack food. You can offer them to people.

都是一樣的。所有不同。葵花籽是傳統的中華名小吃食品。你可以給的種子作為禮物的人見面時。向他們展示友好。

This image is a composite of three images, each with different focus settings, so there are three depths of field.

The seeds are grey and white, but the combination of skylight and artificial lighting creates purple and green hues in the shadows.

Visitors could originally walk upon the "field of seeds", but health concerns over the small quantities of airborne ceramic / vitreous dust that might be generated by friction between the seeds resulted in the work being fenced off with a knee high wire rope, and continuous guarding. (When viewed large, the knee high wire guard rope can be seen in front of the slightly open fire door on the left.)

The dogs of war

Actually it’s a top view of the great old cast iron radiator in the bathroom that’s being remodeled. (This is the same radiator as in "Dust of the ages".) I totally didn’t see the dog thing until it was on the computer, but I like it :).

Difluoroethane droplets

Difluoroethane droplets

Droplets of difluoroethane boiling away on a sheet of brushed aluminum. In other words, the liquid from spraying a can of Dust Off upside-down onto the side panel of my computer case.
This stuff is tricky. It seems to either comes out of the nozzle so fast that I can’t capture it nicely even under a strobe, or it boils away too quickly to get much of it in the shot. It’s also tough to keep it within a macro-sized depth of field, so I had my strobe right up beside the lens so I could get up to F32 and make my depth of field as long as possible. Unfortunately, noise (and its subsequent filtering) killed the finer details of the brushed aluminum, but I don’t think there’s much I can do about that unless I get some really powerful strobes that allow me to turn down my ISO speed.
