Keep off the sunflower seeds

Old news, Beijing artist, dissident and ex-studio owner Ai Weiwei has loaded the Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern with 100,000,000 individually handmade porcelain replica sunflower seeds.  Though billed as a sensory and immersive installation, you are sadly no longer permitted to walk accross the seeds.  I suspect this is becuase people couldn’t resist the temptation to pinch one as a souvenier.  I was disappointed, as I had been hoping to pinch one as a souvenier.  This decision was made on October 16th last year, making this old news too.

People who timed their visit better than me

Sunflower Seeds is at the Turbine Hall untill 2 May.
