Re: [BKARTS] Wheat and homeland security



The artist Xu Bing was trying to get some white powder through 
Security - it was powder he'd collected from the site of the World 
Trade Center and he intended it for a project somewhere. So he molded 
it into a little doll which he gave to his daughter to carry. Once he 
got to his destination both the powder and the narrative of the powder 
turning into an immigrant girl's doll and back again became part of his 
art work.
