Citybike visit to Ai Weiwei

Riding the city bike to the Hirshhorn yesterday was so much fun! The leaves on the streets, tourists, crinkle of gravel on the mall and pumping peddles with sound of train pulling in to Union Station on my way home were the highlights of the ride. The visit to the Hirshhorn blew me away in seeing the artwork of Ai Weiwei for the first time. There is no way at this moment that I could describe his work as others critique with such detail and elegance, but I will say that his work and message leave me excited to be human. His materials and message motivate me to think and care about this world we share. My professor told me to go & check out his use of tea, the last photo. The exhibit is fantastic and am very curious about the relationship or choice of the surveillance camera and helmet in marble. I certainly appreciate the camera, because of all the annoying cameras we have in the city and the helmet for opening up all these great revitalized parts of the city to check out!
