This publication documents the extraordinary project from conception to final installation, giving a behind-the-scenes look at the research, preparatory drawings, planning, and fabrication that brought it to life. The book includes an in-depth interview with Ai Weiwei about the project's personal significance, an essay by curator Nicholas Baume, and statements from a wide variety of individuals--including Olafur Eliasson, David Miliband, Hans Ulrich Obrist, and Jorge Ramos, among many others--about their interactions with the artworks. As Baume asserts, "Ai Weiwei created a remarkable model for what great public art strives to be--emotionally engaging and politically resonant, conceptually and formally inventive yet broadly accessible.""--"@en ;
