@Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz in 3D: With Wind, New Industries Building

Share

This large-scale installation, located in the building once used for prison labor, is based on the traditional Chinese "dragon kite" and features multiple kites strung together to create a single, large multipart kite. The stylized birds and flowers represented on each kite speak to the natural environs of Alcatraz Island—an important bird habitat—and reference 30 nations with serious records of restricting their citizens’ human rights and civil liberties. 

To fully enjoy the immersive experience of the 3D videos, line up the virtual circles so you can swoop over, step through, glide across, and zoom through the exhibits!
